Ever since Arsene Wenger left, the biggest bone of contention between Arsenal fans has been the form of our highest paid player Mesut Ozil, with even Unai Emery not picking him as a certain starter this season. There have been many fans calling for the German to be taken off the wage bill at the Emirates, but yet again Ozil’s agent has made it clear that his client is not going anywhere.
Dr Erkut Sogut told Turkish-Football: “Mesut bleeds Arsenal red, and respecting his contract is a certainty.
“He’ll be staying at Arsenal until at least 2021, and the fans need not to worry about the gossip that may come this summer.
“He has found a place he feels welcome and believes he has a lot more to give.”
I’m not so sure about the ‘feeling welcome’ bit! But it looks like we can agnore any wishful thinking about him leaving us this summer (sorry Lord Jon!), so we can only hope that Emery can get the best out of him as long as he is an Arsenal player.
Ozil may not even play today, but I just have to say that because Arsenal have won the last nine meetings with Burnley, the price of an Arsenal win at 2.155 from MustardBet looks amazing value. Get on it!
