Ozil still has another two-years remaining on his Arsenal contract and the north London based outfit are keen on extending his deal.

The Germany international is of Turkish origin and his family are from the Zonguldak region of Turkey.

The Gunners may currently be 4th in the league but Ozil has been in great form for his club providing the most assists in the league (19) and having created the most chances (130).
