After completing a fairly expensive double swoop to sign Lucas Perez and Shkodran Mustafi last week, Arsenal now reportedly working on another significant deal.

Arsenal secured their first victory of the 2016/17 season against Watford as they kept up with title rivals Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City who have won all three of their games so far.

The future of Mesut Ozil – one of the goalscorers against on Saturday – at the Emirates stadium has been put into doubt this summer following concerns that clubs like Bayern Munich are interested in his services.

Arsene Wenger has admitted that convincing the German, who has only two more years remaining on his contract, to commit his future to the club is one of his priorities.

According to German outlet Bild, the 27-year-old has been offered a new £200,000-a-week deal to become the highest-paid player in the Gunners’ history.

When asked about his future at Arsenal a few weeks ago, Ozil refused to give too much away about negotiations with the club.

“I still have two years contract with Arsenal.” the former Real Madrid star said

“We will be in talks with the club [about a new contract] and we will see what happens.”

Ozil pulling the creative strings makes such a difference like we saw against Watford. He was sharp and incisive throughout, and the desire to get into the box to head home from Sanchez’s cross was equally impressive.

The German is a key component, and although Wenger said post-game he still wasn’t 100 percent physically, this was a great display from a player not yet fully fit.
