Ozil to delay Arsenal contract talks until after Euro 2016

The German playmaker admits he has been frustrated with the Gunners’ season and has urged the club to sign “stronger players” during this summer’s transfer window


Mesut Ozil admits he is in no hurry to extend his contract with Arsenal and says his future will be decided after Euro 2016.

The Germany international was signed by Arsene Wenger in a £42.5 million deal from Real Madrid in 2013 but has been linked with a move away this summer.

Ozil has admitted he was left frustrated by Arsenal’s season and has urged the club to sign “stronger players” during the transfer window.

And when asked about extending his contract with Arsenal, Ozil told reporters in Dubai: “I still have two years’ contract with Arsenal, as you know, and we will be in talks with the club and we’ll see what happens in the future.

“But as I said, now I’m concentrating on Euro 2016 in France, which is very important for me and my team after the last World Cup. Then later on, I will see what I do with Arsenal.”
