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.
A recent development just came up regarding Alexis and Ozil transfer saga today, in the words of Mesut Ozil who, when questioned about his future said:
“It is definitely my preference to stay, it is such a great club and I have always said that I feel very good at Arsenal,” said Ozil. “Once everyone is back in London we will sit down and discuss about the future.”
Notably omitted from that answer is any confirmation he is going to sign any contract. It is a good thing that he wishes to remain at the Emirates, but until he actually put pen to paper, it’s all just words.
Here are some other words Mesut said:
“I hope Alexis stays but I don’t know what the status is to be perfectly honest. I value him a lot as a player and he’s very well suited to the game Arsenal play.”
The statement ‘I hope Alexis stays’ is not a statement with a lot of meat behind it because the probability of that happening is very low. But maybe he is trying to encourage Sanchez to sign a new deal. But whatever he aims at, it looks Mesut Ozil, at least will once again be seen playing in the Arsenal shirt next season
