Arsenal Playmaker, Mesut Ozil has decided to stay at Emirates until his current contract with the club expires.
Ozil has also told close friends that he wants to play for a club in the USA or Turkey when he leaves the Gunners, Sun Sports reports.
His current contract at Arsenal will expire in the summer of 2021.
Before the coronavirus enforced break, Ozil featured in all games since Arteta took over from Unai Emery last December.
However, Ozil has fallen out of favour under Arteta in recent weeks.
The former Germany international was omitted from the Arsenal squad that played 1-1 with Leicester City on Tuesday.
Meanwhile, Arteta has since told Ozil that he will be restored to the team when he “can give his best”.
“Again, I am the first one who wants Mesut at his best. I will put him on the pitch when I think he can give his best,” Arteta said.
Few months back, Mesut Ozil’s agent, Erkut Sogut gave his verdict on the Arsenal midfielder leaving the Gunners for European side, Fenerbahce, amid the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) across the globe.
Anaedoonline.com recalls that Ozil, who is a huge admirer of Fenerbahce, has drawn interest from the Turkish giants in the past few months.
The 31-year-old’s current contract at Arsenal will expire in 2021.
But Sogut has now refused to rule out Ozil’s move to the Yellow Canaries, noting that in football, anything can happen.
He also stated that the former Real Madrid playmaker is presently happy at the Emirates club.
“You never know in football, first of all, you can never predict the movement of players,” Sogut told Goal.
“I have said it before, and I am repeating it that Ozil is pleased where he is at Arsenal. Ozil still has a contract to go, and there is no change. We will see what the future holds when the contract ends, but for now, there is nothing I can say.”
