Mesut Ozil Signs New Deal As Aubameyang Joins Arsenal

Mesut Ozil

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal to stay at the club until 2021.

Ozil, 29, becomes the highest-paid player in the club’s history – earning about £350,000 a week before tax.

The deal, signed on Wednesday, follows months of speculation about the future of the Germany international, whose previous deal was due to expire at the end of the season.

He joined the Gunners from Real Madrid in 2013 for a then club record £42.4m.

Ozil could have left Arsenal as a free agent in the summer and had been able to discuss a move with foreign clubs since 1 January.

Ozil had been linked with a summer switch to Manchester United but the former Real Madrid man has committed to the club until the summer of 2021.

The news of Ozil’s new deal broke shortly after the London club had confirmed a club-record deal for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
