However, in the summer of 2013, Wenger shattered his own transfer record and signed Mesut Ozil in a £42.5 million deal and that threw the club’s fans into excitement.
Since Ozil moved to the Emirates, he has justified the sum doled out for him as he has led the team to two FA Cup and is currently the icing on the cake for them this term.
Ozil is about the most creative player in the world at the moment. His inch-perfect passes and assist has fired Arsenal to the top of the table and Mesut Ozil is now been rewarded with a new contract.
He has reported agreed to extend his stay with Arsenal until 2021 and his new contract is now reportedly worth £51.5 million. This will make him the highest paid player in the history of the club.
It is being reported that his wage will be upped by £50,000. He was previously on a£140,000-wage-per week but he will now be earning a whopping £190,000k. An official announcement for the deal is expected to be made sooner.
Ozil has featured in 18 Premier League games for Arsenal this season. He tops the assist chat in the world currently. He has provided 16 assist in the League this term, scoring three goals.
This report if true, will put an end to all the rumours that have been linking Ozil back to Real Madrid. It will also put an end to all the rumours linking the German world cup winner to Bayern Munich.
