Mesut Ozil is set to sign a new contract for Arsenal in the coming weeks. Being the most creative player in English football this season, Arsenal will be lucky to keep the German international at the club for the next few seasons.
His teammate Alexis Sanchez is also set to extend his contract with the gunners. Ozil did miracles in the midfield for Arsenal this season. At one point, Arsenal was actually dreaming of winning the Barclays Premier League title.
However, lady luck was not on their side and now they are actually fighting for a top-four finish. Contract extension talks with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez are a glimmer of hope that Arsenal will deliver the BPL crown to its fans in the coming season.
This season, Ozil has scored 6 fine goals and created 18 chances. He plays fantastically well when paired with almost every attacker in the team. He has set up several goals for Alexis Sanchez, another Arsenal talisman who is also in talks with the club for an improved contract.
Arsenal fans will relish the idea of keeping these two players at the club into the foreseeable future. Mesut Ozil is only 27 years old, thus he still has a lot of time to enjoy soccer. He previously played for Real Madrid winning several titles with the club. He has also won the world cup with the German national team.
Alexis Sanchez is his age mate, and this pair has been lethal going forward this season. This trend is expected to continue.
