Ozil wants to stay at Arsenal, agent insists

Mesut Ozil’s agent Dr Erkut Sogut has insisted that the player wants to stay at Arsenal 

There has been speculation over the German’s future, particularly since he was left out by Gunners boss Unai Emery.

Several clubs were linked with Ozil ahead of the transfer window amid reports that he could be set to leave the Emirates Stadium.

But Sogut told that Ozil, who signed a new contract last year, wants to stay put and has no plans to leave.

“I would prefer not to speak publicly about Mesut’s situation, but given the recent speculation linking him with a move away from Arsenal, I do feel it is important to provide some clarity so we can end this and focus on football,” he said.

“Mesut signed a new contract last January because he saw his future at Arsenal and nothing has changed in his mind. He wants to stay for the duration of that contract and maybe even longer.

“Mesut is 100 per cent committed to Arsenal Football Club. He loves the club, shares its values and does not want to be anywhere else.

“In the last year, there has been enormous upheaval for everybody at the club and the first half of this season has not been perfect for Mesut.

“He has suffered from injuries and illness, and is working hard to adapt to the different system employed by head coach Unai Emery.

“This may take time, but Mesut will give everything he has to help make it work and bring success to Arsenal.”
