Mesut Ozil is close to signing a new contract with Arsenal 0

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 embarrassingĀ 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.

Alan Smith warns that fan fury is growing into a ‘crescendo’ 1

Former-Arsenal star Alan Smith has warned that fan anger is growing into a ‘crescendo’ as there is a lack of passion for the club from Stan Kroenke.

Arsenal were beaten last weekend by Manchester City in a 3-1 defeat as they were plunged into even more pressure. The Premier League leaders were good value for their win, and they should have probably beaten the London side by more, with their finishing unusually wayward.

The defeat means that Arsenal have slipped down into sixth place, 12 short of City at the top. The loss saw their slim title hopes all but extinguished, while they are now three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea too.
