Posted on February 01, 2018 by Ben Darvill

Mesut Ozil has signed a contract extension with Arsenal that will keep him at the club until 2021. This comes as welcome news after the Gunners were forced to say goodbye to Alexis Sanchez in the winter transfer window.

The protracted transfer saga surrounding Alexis Sanchez finally ended as he sealed a move to Manchester United. He had been tipped to reunite with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, but he instead moved to Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United instead.

Since then, Arsenal have brought in Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who was part of the Sanchez deal, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund, with the two adding to the firepower up front.

German international Mesut Ozil will put pen to paper on a new contract with Arsenal in the coming days after agreeing terms with the Gunners, according to reports in German media outlet Bild.

Ozil was expected to follow Alexis Sanchez on his way out of the Emirates Stadium this month but is said to have been impressed with the club’s reaction and is determined to remain at the club to ‘link up with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’.

Gabon international striker and wantaway Borussia Dortmund hot-shot is already in London to wrap up his £55 million move from the Bundesliga side and the ambition Arsenal displayed by grabbing a world-class striker this January is said to have convinced Mesut Ozil to remain in London.

Arsene Wenger has given an update on Mesut Ozil, with the contract of the midfielder expiring in the summer. The manager will be desperate to keep the German with the Premier League club after losing talisman Alexis Sanchez to Manchester United earlier this week.

The protracted transfer saga surrounding Alexis Sanchez ended earlier this week as the Chilean finally earned his move away from the Gunners. It had seemed like he would join up with Pep Guardiola and Manchester City initially, but he has instead become a part of Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United team.

Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is reportedly a transfer target of Manchester United as Jose Mourinho’s side continues to test their Premier League rival’s resolve over their best players. Alexis Sanchez sealed his move earlier in the week, and his former-teammate in Ozil could follow him to Old Trafford.

The biggest saga of the January transfer window finally ended this week as Alexis Sanchez sealed his switch to Manchester United. Many had suspected he might join up with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City instead, but this move did not ever materialise, and he will instead be wearing the red of Manchester United from this point onwards.

Kevin Campbell has claimed that if the attacking players Arsenal have been linked with do join the club, then Arsene Wenger will have to find a way to play them all. If this is true, then it could leave the Premier League outfit even weaker at the back, with most of their problems stemming from their poor backline this season.

Alexis Sanchez is edging closer to a move away from Arsenal this winter as the biggest stage of the current window draws to a close. It seemed at first that he would join Pep Guardiola and Manchester City, but he is on the verge of becoming a Manchester United player instead.

Win over Palace will not paper over the cracks 0

Arsenal’s 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday was certainly positive, especially on the back of Alexis Sanchez’s imminent departure from the club. Mesut Ozil, Nacho Monreal and Alex Iwobi all seemed more influential for the Gunners.

However, the win should not be used to paper over the cracks at the club or in the team. Palace headed to north London without a number of their key defensive players, including first-choice centre-back partnership of Scott Dann and Mamadou Sakho.

On Saturday afternoon, Arsenal host Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium, as the Gunners look to get back to winning ways.

Arsenal heads into this game on the back of a poor run of form in the Premier League. The Gunners have won just two of their last nine league games, although five of those games have finished in draws.

Last time out in the Premier League, Arsenal suffered a 2-1 defeat Bournemouth. The defeat leaves Arsene Wenger’s team eight points behind fourth-place Chelsea in the race for the Champions League places.

Alan Smith believes that Alexis Sanchez’s departure helps this star’s contract negotiations 0

Former-Arsenal star Alan Smith has claimed that Alexis Sanchez’s departure from the club will only help the position of Mesut Ozil when it comes to negotiating a new contract with the club, with the Chilean on the verge of a big move to Manchester United in the current transfer window.

Arsenal’s last Premier League game ended in a dismal 2-1 loss at the hands of Bournemouth on Sunday as they lost even more ground on those above them. The Cherries were able to move up to 13th in the league with 24 points, four clear of the relegation zone. Arsenal, on the other hand, are now eight points short of Chelsea in the final Champions League spot, with their season threatening to go up in flames.

Former-Arsenal great Alan Smith has claimed that Mesut Ozil is close to signing a new deal with the club with his contract running down. Alexis Sanchez’s protracted move away from the Gunners has seen most of the headlines following the Chilean, and perhaps the news will help the fans to keep their minds off the departing star.

Arsenal fell to an embarrassing 2-1 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth on Sunday. Hector Bellerin gave the Gunners the lead before Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe struck to turn the games on its head.

According to Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, German international playmaker Mesut Ozil will not leave the north London club in the January transfer window.

When asked at his weekly press conference, if Ozil will still be at the club in February, Wenger replied: “Yes, of course.” The French boss was then asked could he move this month, he just said: “no”.

Wenger also stated in the press conference that Alexis Sanchez’s switch to Manchester United ‘Is likely to happen’.
