Mesut Ozil’s agent says there is no chance of the playmaker leaving Arsenal before the end of his contract in 2021.
The former Germany international is no longer a guaranteed starter for the Gunners with boss Unai Emery having left him on the bench on several occasions this season, while he has struggled to perform when he has been called upon by Arsene Wenger’s successor.
With the 30-year-old the top earner at the Emirates Stadium and Arsenal needing to make room on the wage bill this summer, there has been talk they could look to offload Ozil when the transfer window opens.

Ozil was understood to be open to a move if someone can match his sizeable pay packet but his agent, Dr Erkut Sogut, has denied there is a possibility he could leave the Emirates Stadium anytime soon. “Rumours will always persist, – there is no doubt about that – but one thing I can guarantee is Mesut’s loyalty,” he told Turkish-Football.com. “His mind is focused on Arsenal, and Arsenal only.
Mesut bleeds Arsenal red, and respecting his contract is a certainty. “He’ll be staying at Arsenal until at least 2021, and the fans need not to worry about the gossip that may come this summer. He has found a place he feels welcome and believes he has a lot more to give.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
