Mesut Ozil has once again given a hint of a possible extension of his contract with Arsenal. Ozil wants the no 10 jersey vacated by Jack Wilshere.
Wilshere has been loaned out to Bournemouth for the whole season. The midfielder used to wear the no 10 jersey while Ozil has been handed over the no 11 since his arrival from Real Madrid. Ozil wears the no 10 shirt for Germany as well.
The playmaker has only 18 months left on his contract and hasn’t signed a new deal. He has been involved in a contract standoff with the club but Arsenal are very hopeful of reaching an agreement soon.
Ozil said, “I would love to wear the 10 shirt, I always wanted that, the club knew from the beginning
“When I came to Arsenal in 2013, Jack Wilshere already had the 10. The club said I would get the 10 when it was free. She has been free since Wilshere’s departure in the summer – I have not been able to do it yet.”
