Mesut Ozil’s recent answer in an interview with Sport1 will be music to just about every Arsenal fan’s ears.

When asked if the playmaker would ever return to the German league, Ozil admitted that although he can’t rule it out, he’s not looking to move away from north London anytime soon.

“You never say never,” he said. 

“Quite honestly, I do not know. I feel very comfortable here currently.London is a great city to live.”

This season it appears as if a weight has lifted off Ozil’s shoulders. Although he’s been fantastic during his short time at Arsenal so far, something just seems different now. His confidence has grown, he’s taking shots he never would have taken last season, and is scoring goals regularly.

He’s also playing with a smile on his face and appears to really be enjoying life in London – something he’s spoken about on numerous occasions.

It’s so comforting to see a player genuinely happy to be at the club, especially a player we love so much and who brings so much to our team.
