Mesut Ozil has hinted he will stay at Arsenal beyond this season.
The German told told Bild am Sonntag he is open to a new contract with Arsenal, even if Arsene Wenger doesn’t remain in charge.
The playmaker has less than 18 months left on his current deal and there have been suggestions he is ready to move on.
The 28 year-old says winning trophies is his prime motivation, but revealed he is open to a new deal to remain at The Emirates.
“Everything is still open,” said the German international.
“There have been talks with Arsenal but at the moment, I’m concentrating on the current season, just like the officials at Arsenal.”
“I would very much like to win the Champions League one day, ideally with Arsenal. I still have a year left on my contract here.”
“I have always said I’m very happy at Arsenal. Everything fits here — the club, the fans and the city. Arsene Wenger was also one of the main reasons why I joined Arsenal.
“However, I also know that in football everything moves very quickly and a lot differently to what you had planned. Therefore, it would be wrong to say that my future is dependent on the coach.”
Arsenal spent £42.5m on the former Real Madrid attacking-midfielder on deadline day in 2013. There have been rumours that Ozil is seeking a move back to the Spanish capital.
