German flop plans on staying at Arsenal amid transfer speculation

Mesut Ozil has stated that there is very little chance of him leaving the club this transfer window.

Mesut Ozil’s future with the Gunners has once again come under question during the season, having found himself in and out of the starting lineup during Unai Emery’s first year in charge.

However, the midfielder intends to see out the two remaining years on his deal and insists that he is glad to play wherever his manager wants.

“I don’t think there’s a chance of [leaving] to be honest. I’ve got two more years here, and what happens afterwards is not in my hands. We’ll see then, but I’m proud to be at this club and happy at this club,” Mesut Ozil told DAZN Dach.

“If the coach speaks to me and tells me I won’t play in a game, it’s something I need to accept and just get on with it. I’ve carried on working on making myself as fit and healthy as I could, and it’s worked out for me. Now I’m playing, but of course, it’s the coach’s decision if I play or not.”

Mesut Ozil featured in only 24 of Arsenal’s 38 Premier League games during the 2018-19 season, netting five goals and creating two more but from the 30-year-old ace, fans are expecting much more.

But it must be also admitted that the beef between the former Germany international and Unai Emery at the beginning of the season played a big role in the playmaker’s poor statistics.
