Gooners are set to receive another huge boost as regards the long-term future of its key players.

Happy times, isn’t it?
According to the Sunday Mirror, Mesut Ozil is ready to sign a new contract that will keep him at the Emirates until 2021.
The midfielder has been in talks over a new deal since May but if this report is to be believed, then Arsenal have found a breakthrough in negotiations with the German.
It is claimed that talks are now at an advanced stage and could be completed before the new year. Talks will continue after the international break and it is expected that the midfielder’s renewal will cost Arsenal about £160,000 a week for the next five years.
A club source confirmed to the Mirror that Ozil’s renewal is close, saying “we are getting closer”.
Gooners will definitely be excited with this news as it means one of our key players is set to stay for a long time.
Should Ozil put pen to paper on the new deal, it will afford him the opportunity to attain the status of a club Legend just like Dennis Bergkamp. It’s been a long time since we as fans had someone like Bergkamp in our squad and Ozil will definitely put himself in that position with this new contract.
