Ozil Wants To Stay, Hopes Alexis Does As Well

Ozil Wants To Stay, Hopes Alexis Does As Well

Mesut Ozil has said he plans to hold contract talks at the end of Arsenal's tour of Australia and he hopes that Alexis Sanchez will also remain at the club.

The Daily Mail point out he only has one year left on his deal at the Emirates Stadium but repeat he's after £350,000 a week to secure his 'preference' which is to remain at the club.

Quoting him from the third kit launch earlier today, Ozil explained.




'It is definitely my preference to stay. It is such a great club and I have always said that I feel very good at Arsenal. Once everyone is back in London we will sit down and discuss about the future. For now the most important thing is our pre-season and getting through the tour, training and getting fitness. When I'm back in London, we will sit down and discuss.'

Ozil went on to say that he hasn't spoken to Alexis Sanchez about his own future, but he was hoping he would stay as obviously it would be a blow.

Quoted by Sky Sports he also said.

'It would hit the team quite hard if he left because he's a player who always delivers. It would be a setback to winning the title, but in the end it's the player's decision. I hope Alexis stays but I don't know what the status is, to be honest. I value him a lot as a player and he's very well suited to the game Arsenal play. From a personal view I'd really appreciate if he stays, but it's the player's decision after all and there's not much more I can comment on that.'
