Mesut Ozil has reportedly agreed to sign a new £280k-per-week contract with Arsenal.

While previous reports claimed that Ozil had made a u-turn and decided to sign a new deal at Arsenal after all, an EXCLUSIVE in the S*n has now confirmed that the playmaker will be earning a whopping £280k-per-week. A club record, which the Gunners were rumoured to have offered the 28-year-old this week and he’d promptly turned down.

Apparently, he was ‘holding out’ for £350k-per-week but obviously decided to settle, which is generous. Although I’m not sure he would demand such a pay increase, only to go back on it a day later.

The German currently earns ‘just’ £140k-per-week and is Arsenal’s highest paid player.

Although Alexis Sanchez was reportedly offered the same deal, it appears that he’s turned his down, with an increasing amount of rumours circulating regarding a potential move to Bayern Munich.
