With the news that Arsenal are trying to tie Mesut Ozil down to a contract extension to take him up until 2018, it’s fair to say Twitter will be fairly pleased.
We’re allegedly going to offer the midfielder a £140k a week contract while rumours that we’re rising Alexis’ to £130k also doing the rounds.
Now we have the resources to keep hold of our players and not allow them to run into their final two years, we might as well use them.
The general consensus on Twitter was that we should basically give Ozil whatever he wants to stay at Arsenal. Although others weren’t quite so thrilled…
I really hope Arsenal are locked in negotiations to extend Ozil’s contract!
