Mesut Ozil explains how happy he is with his new Arsenal role


Mesut Ozil has spoken about how much he enjoys his role at Arsenal when he’s able to play with Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette.

The creative star was brilliant in the win over Tottenham Hotspur, and showed that the doubters who claimed he was not good enough in big games were wrong – at least sometimes, and he now has more assists than any other Premier League player sine 2013.

The star is considering signing a new deal with the Gunners, and it seems that if he puts in more performances like that, the club will be willing to pay the £300,000 per week he is asking.

“I really enjoy it, we have good quality,” Ozil told Sky Sports. “Lacazette and Alexis are always dangerous, they can always score and today especially Alexis showed his quality. 

“I am really happy for him to score against Tottenham and I’m really thankful to win this game.

“We are happy, the fans are happy and we are happy to have Musti [Mustafi] back. He showed his quality today and you see our defence is more stable and more compact.”

Ozil is not the only player who is considering staying at the club, and Arsene Wenger has claimed he thinks that both Ozil and Sanchez could well be willing to pen new deals – and it seems that while the club were worrying about losing their best players, that may not even be the case anymore.

It seems Alexis does look like leaving, but in terms of Ozil the signs are positive and he certainly enjoys playing in a more attacking role in the ‘golden triangle’ that the media have dubbed Lacazette, Alexis and Ozil when they play together for the Gunners.
