Arsenal team news

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has stated that the North London based club are in no hurry to extend Mesut Ozil’s contract.

Eyebrows have been raised by Gunners fans with their two stars, Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez’s going into the final two years of their deals.

“These two players have two years to go on their contracts at the end of the season,” Wenger was quoted as saying by SkySports.

“So that is why we are not in a hurry. The players are very keen to stay and we are talking.”

Ozil is Arsenal’s most expensive signing however, following a disappointing end to the season Ozil is seeking assurances that the squad will be strengthened in the summer.

Ozil has provided the highest number of assists in the Premier League this season (19).

The Germany international star would have had more assists to his name had it not been for the profligacy of his teammates.

Ozil has created the most chances in the league (122) but Arsenal have the lowest goal record in the top four.
