Mesut Ozil has stated that he would very much like to remain at Arsenal and open contract talks with the club, after their tour in Australia.
It was widely expected that Ozil and Sanchez would leave the Emirates stadium, after Arsenal missed out on the UCL.
However, it seems not a lot of club can afford the midfielder’s wage and he has opted for the option of staying.
“It is definitely my preference to stay,” he said at a kit launch in Sydney.
“It is such a great club and I have always said that I feel very good at Arsenal. Once everyone is back in London we will sit down and discuss about the future.
“For now the most important thing is our pre-season and getting through the tour, training and getting fitness. When I’m back in London, we will sit down and discuss.”
