Mesut Ozil extends contract with Arsenal

Mesut Ozil extends contract with Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has challenged Mesut Ozil to lead the team to success after the midfielder signed a new contract.

And while concerns over the Gunners' defence continue to linger, there can be no doubting the quality of their attack regardless of Alexis Sanchez's Manchester United switch. "Arsenal's attacking force is something you have to manage".

Slimani has struggled to live up to his £30 million price tag as Leicester's most expensive signing, with 13 goals in 46 appearance since his arrival in 2016.

After conceding another three goals in their shock defeat to Swansea City last time out, Wenger concedes that his side must rectify their defensive frailties with the players available if they are to end the season on a high.

Santi Cazorla remains the only long-term absentee for Arsenal, who will welcome back Jack Wilshere, who missed the previous game with an illness.

"Defending has been Arsenal's Achilles heel for years but what did they do to correct it in this window? But nobody gets a free run at a player anymore for that price", Neville expounded. I'm really happy to see him again.

Wenger was asked whether Arsenal managed to achieve their objectives during the transfer window.

Following his January departure from the Emirates, Walcott will return to face his former club having only played two games for the Toffees.

Food for thought, no doubt.

British media reported that the new deal is worth up to 350,000 pounds ($500,000) a week, making the World Cup victor the highest-paid player at the club.

"He has committed his future to the club", Wenger told the media, as quoted by Sky Sports.

Manchester United and Barcelona had been touted as potential destinations for Ozil, and reports of a reunion with Jose Mourinho - his coach at Real Madrid - increased around the turn of the year.

They do have plenty of athleticism moving forward, however, and it was on the counter where Swansea hurt the Gunners the most.

"The situation poses Wenger a problem he will have to try and resolve on the training pitch". "He (Aubameyang) spent four years in Germany and had some problems in the last year linked with the fact that maybe his transfer did not work in the summer and he did not have the same commitment as he had before".

And this, I suspect, is what happened with Ozil.
