Barcelona target Mesut Ozil remains coy on Arsenal future

Arsenal Fenerbahce

Arsenal’s star playmaker Mesut Ozil has remained coy regarding his future at the north London based club.

The 27-year-old stated his intention to see out his contract but didn’t reveal his long-team plans.

“I still have two more years after this season, I feel, as I have said that in the past, I feel really good,” Ozil told BT Sport’s Raphael Honigstein.

“My team mates are great, the city is great, but as said, you can never tell what will happen in football.”

“But I have two more years after this season, and yes, as I said before, I am very happy here.”

The World Cup winner has been closely linked with a move to Barcelona following a report from Spanish sports newspaper AS that claimed club technical secretary, Roberto Fernandez is preparing an offer for Ozil.

Ozil still has another two years remaining on his current contract but Arsenal are currently locked in talks over renewing his deal.

The Germany international has provided the highest number of assists in the league this season (19) and would have had more had it not been for the profligacy of his teammates.

The Gunners star has also created the most chances in the league (122) but Arsenal have the lowest goal record in the top four.

Arsenal host Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, kick-off is at 16:00 (GMT).
