Arsenal fans are rejoicing over the completion of the Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang transfer and are still in line for more positive news. Mesut Ozil has reportedly agreed to a new contract which will tie his services to the club until the summer of 2021. The North London club has agreed to pay the German £350,000-per-week.
A huge morale booster for not only the Arsenal faithful but also the players who have been in the midst of the entire Alexis Sanchez transfer saga since last summer. Ozil had rejected an earlier offer from the Gunners management and was close to a move away to Manchester United. After a 6th place finish in the Premier League last season and bowing out of the UEFA Champions League, Ozil was questioning his future with the North London club.
But it looks like the German has changed his mind and is set to resume his impressive form under Arsene Wenger. The former Galactico can be credited with taking the more dignified and respectable trajectory than his former Chilean teammate. While Sanchez had looked completely lacklustre over the past 6 months in an Arsenal jersey, Ozil has started off the campaign in red-hot form assisting his teammates 7 times and netting the ball on 4 occasions. The stat line might not be impressive from a distant point of view but the 29-year-old has taken up the creative role majority of the times before the resurgence of Jack Wilshere.
Arsene Wenger has shifted him from his usual position – behind the striker to a more wing-based role on the right-hand side and Ozil has fit into it remarkably well. Now that Henrikh Mkhitaryan and the highly esteemed Borussia Dortmund striker has arrived, the former Galactico will be able to link up with like-minded attacking individuals to push the team towards a strong finish.
Arsenal are coming off a 3-1 loss to Swansea City last night and have again fallen behind Liverpool in the 6th spot of the points table. Their best chance of making a return to the Champions League is by winning the UEFA Europa League.
They are set to face heavy competition in the tournament now that both Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund have entered the competition. Wenger now will have to address the defensive issues, which allowed the Swans to slot in three goals. Signing Jonny Evans in the dying minutes will make it a highly successful transfer window.
