German international Mesut Ozil has revealed that his future at the Emirates will not be influenced by Arsene Wenger’s staying at the club next season.
Ozil has earlier suggested that his future at the club could depend on whether Arsene Wenger would be staying at the club or not. But now he is willing to determine his future at the club without the Wenger factor.
The 28-year old will have one year left in his Arsenal contract at the end of the season and a host of clubs are keen to sign him next summer. However, the midfield passing maestro has not given any confirmation to the fans on his future at the club so far.
Ozil was speculated to move away from the club over the past few months as he along with Chilean international Alexis Sanchez are yet to sign their contract extensions as the duo have so far looked reluctant to extend their stay in London despite months of negotiations at the start of the season.
‘I’ve always said that I feel at Arsenal: the club, the fans, the city – it’s all here,’ he told Bild.
‘Arsène Wenger was also one of the main reasons why I came to Arsenal.
‘But I also know that it can sometimes go fast in football and much different than you plan. So it would be wrong to say that my future depends only on the coach.’
Arsene Wenger is on the verge of signing a new contract at the club in the next few weeks as the Frenchman is in no urge of leaving the club despite their embarrassing losses over the past one month especially after their 10-2 drubbing in the hands of German giants Bayern Munich in Champions League.
