Arsenal midfielders Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere are close to putting pen to paper on a new deal with the Club, that’s according to the Sun.
Like Alexis Sanchez, the aforementioned pair are in the final six months of their current contract with Arsenal and there has been uncertainty over their future. This report would be a morale booster for the London Club who are on the verge of losing their best player.
Ozil joined Arsenal from Real Madrid as the most expensive signing of the club in the summer of 2013 after a £42m deal was brokered. He is currently on a £150,000-a-week wages and he wants the Gunners to substantially increase his earnings and hand him the No.10 Jersey.
The Germany star was linked with a move to Manchester United but he apparently wants to continue living in London as claimed by a source. An Emirates source said: “Mesut loves it here. He loves living in London and has made it clear he wants to stay.
Meanwhile, the career of Wilshere has been blighted by countless injuries but he has been the most impressive Arsenal player since his return from injury. The new deal is said to include incentives based on his fitness level and the number of appearances he makes.
“Jack is Arsenal through-and-through and wants to become club captain next season. He wants to be a legend.
“They’ve both got the contracts on the table and there’s not much else to iron out really. They should be all sorted soon.” the insider claimed.
