‘So basically no one wants him bar Fenerbache’ – Arsenal fans react to Mesut Ozil wanting to stay on social media
Arsenal star playmaker Mesut Ozil finally revealed his plans for next season yesterday.
It was good news for Arsenal fans – well those that like Ozil – as the playmaker of Turkish origin confirmed he will be staying at the club.
Ozil is currently in Australia with the rest of the Arsenal squad and will travel to China as well for the pre-season tour.
The 28-year-old will hold talks to renew his contract when he returns to London.
The news created a mixed response from Arsenal fans, we took a look at some of the reactions on Twitter.
There were quite a few fans who thought Ozil’s decision stemmed from there being little interest in him.
So basically no one wants him bar Fenerbache

There were many fans over the moon about news that Ozil will be staying on next season. It will be interesting to see how he does with Alexandre Lacazette upfront.
I don’t know why people aren’t happy he is staying such an important member of our squad

Am so glad. Hope this persuade Alexis too. Those who disagree he is not wanted or is good enough can kiss my arse..

I think this is top news! His ability to split a defence wide open will benefit AL#9

Ozil hasn’t signed yet and he says he’s going to stay and sign his contract and Sanchez will sign it after his holidays ????????? boom!!!

Ozil and Sanchez dual contract extention announcement would make me cry i think.

But does it come down to a case of nobody wanting Ozil?
There is no denying he is a top quality player but are clubs simply not willing to pay what Arsenal want for him?
translates to – “no team has put a bid in for me”

Translation: nobody wants me and I have no choice

Lol no one seriously came for him. He really had no choice

??? Of course Mesut Ozil wants to stay. If he went to another club he’d actualy have to run around.

Noone else is big enough a mug to pay 300k a week for him

Reality shock that nobody in Europe rates him high enough to go in for him anymore…
— T Lemar (@LemArsenalFC) July 12, 2017
Well there is no one out there chasing his signature!
— Monsieur Relo (@Monsieur_Relo) July 12, 2017

Funny how “great” Ozil is .. dude got one yr left on his contract… and nobody is fighting for his signature..

Ozil appears to be harshly criticised or should he be offering more for what he is paid.
Ozil had 12 goals and 12 assist in all competitions,is that not a great stat for a midfielder please tell me? ??⚽️⚽️ ozil
