Mesut Ozil is ready to commit his long-term future to Arsenal – but only if Arsene Wenger remains as manager of the club.
Contract discussions between the Gunners and Ozil are ongoing as he moves into the final 18 months of his current deal.
The German playmaker revealed he was waiting on Wenger to decide whether to continue beyond this season before penning fresh terms.
“I am very, very happy at Arsenal and have let the club know that I would be ready to sign a new contract,” Ozil told German magazine Kicker.
“The fans want that I stay and now it is just down to the club. They know that I am here most of all because of Arsene Wenger. He is the one who signed me and he is the one whose trust I have. The club also knows that I want to be clear what the manager is going to do.” – Daily Mail Online
