Ozil contract talks: what he really wants




After being heavily involved in the summer transfer window, Wenger now has the responsibility to ensuring that his core squad members commit their future to the club.

According to reports, Mesut Ozil has agreed to commit his future to Arsenal but on the condition that Arsene Wenger will remain at the helms of Arsenal’s affairs.

Ozil, 28, is in the final two-years of his contract but talks were reportedly stalled over his wage demands. He wants as much as  £200,000 a week which it appears Arsenal don’t mind offering, per reports.

His cameos for Arsenal this season has left so much to be cheerful for. From being the king of assist, he was assisted to his first hatrick yesterday and he is not taking his legs off the turtle – this has seen fans called on Wenger to offer him  demands.

Last season, it took Ozil 18 games in the League to score 3 goals for the Gunners. This season, however, he has achieved the same feat in only 7 appearances. Thus, while his assists have dried out, Ozil is finding other ways to contribute to the Arsenal squad.

When Ozil made the move to Arsenal from Real Madrid in the summer of 2013, he revealed that Arsene Wenger’s presence at the emirates was a main reason why he decided to make the move. It is only logical that he would want to remain with a manager that believes in his ability.

I think Wenger is going to extend his contract by two years.

Arsenal must keep him as he has already proved himself to be a world class player.

Coquelin is fantastic, who needs Kante… as Arsenal top champions league table




7 points from three games, scoring 9 and conceding just one goal is not a bad return at all.

We are topping group A now on goal difference, having gotten a draw in France against PSG.

The game  at the Emirates between us and PSG will probably be the one that determines who wins the group, and who comes second.

Looking at the Ludogorets game in isolation, it’s difficult not to pick at least five players that were absolutely fantastic, namely; Ozil, Sanchez, Chamberlain, Walcott, and Coquelin. But for me, one man deserves some special praise and it’s not Mesut Ozil… Its seamless Francis Coquelin.

Just look at his Stats:


Passing accuracy: 92.7%(of 55 total passes)- 2nd in the team behind only Koscielny(92.9% from 42 total passes)

Key Passes: 1- 5 players had more, but it’s not really his job.


Total tackles: 9- Led all Arsenal  players

Interceptions: 6- Led all Arsenal  players


Touches:  74- Joint highest in the team with Mesut Ozil

If these stats are not proof that Coquelin is the answer to our defensive midfield problems, then i don’t know what is.

He has continued from where he stopped last season from a form point of view, and i’m so pleased to see that he is making it at Arsenal. He is now one of our key players.

He harries opposition players into making errors,and generally gets in their faces. He is always busy, and is hardly ever caught ball watching. Thank God for Coquelin… Who needs Kante?

So it was a wonderful night at the Emirates, and the fans were treated to some thrilling football. We’ve loved every moment of the past two months, long may it continue.

My feeling is that as long as we keep our best players fit, there is no limit to what we can achieve this season. The confidence is sky-high, the football is great, and the goals are not lacking. Not to mention that we’ve kept 5 clean sheets in our last 6 games in all competitions.

Mustafi has also been a great signing i must say.

Let’s keep things running smoothly and win the league this season… Its certainly within our capabilities.
