Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Mesut Ozil is ready to commit his future to Arsenal.
Midfield star Ozil’s been in brilliant form this season and the Gunners’ hierarchy are confident he will sign a new £160,000-a-week, five-year deal.
Talks are at an advanced stage and will continue after the international break, with a club source claiming on Saturday night, “we are getting closer”.
Ozil had been linked with a return to Real Madrid, the club he left in September 2013 to move to the Gunners for a £40million fee.
But after an indifferent first season, Ozil has now settled in London. And the summer arrival of compatriot Shkodran Mustafi from Valencia has helped the club’s cause in persuading him to extend his stay.
