Well it has been an excellent couple of weeks in Arsenal’s history with the signing of PEA and Mikhi, and the latest reports saying that Mesut Ozil has signed a new contract extension, which will make him far and away Arsenal’s best paid player ever on a massive 350,000 GBP a week.
The Gunners have refused to officially confirm Ozil’s extension, but we have been told by his Arsenal team-mate Mohamed Elneny that the German has informed him that the deal is done. “I spoke to Mesut and he told me that he signed the new contract. He is a world class player on and off the pitch,” Elneny told BeIN Sports.
“He is a vital player for us and there is always a positive aura surrounding him.”
He certainly has been Arsenal’s most influential player for us in the last few months, and with PEA, Lacazette and Mikhi alongside him we will scare any set of defenders put in front of them.
Meanwhile, Mesut himself has put a brilliant and very funny twitter update, hinting that the contract has been signed in a humourous manner….

We also had a great boost last night seeing Man United (and Alexis) get beaten by Tottenham, and Chelsea’s crazy 3-0 home defeat to Bournemouth, giving Arsenal a chance to close the gap in the coming weeks. If we can only come out of our League meetings with Spurs and Man City unscathed we could have a great chance of making up the lost ground. LMAO at our front four strikers!
