Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil is ready to commit to the club and is willing to see out his contract which has two more years left.
Ozil has been used sparingly by coach Unai Emery, with rumours going round that the Spanish might let the German international leave at the end of the season.
However, Ozil, who spoke ahead of their Europa League semifinal match against Valencia at home on Thursday night said he is ‘happy’ at the club, and has not considered leaving.
“Absolutely. I’ve got two more years on my contract. I don’t know after that but I’ve got two years left,” Ozil told Sky Sports when asked if he was ready to stay at the club.
“I’m 30 now, still got years in front of me, it’s down to the club as well of course, but I’ve got two years here – after that I don’t know what happens,” he added.
Despite not being able to tie down a starting spot week in week out, Ozil said he has no qualms with coach Emery.
“No [issues with Emery]. Definitely not. There’s always speculation, everyone inside knew that our situation is positive,”
Ozil did not feature in the club’s 3-0 loss to Leicester in an English Premier League match on Sunday but is expected to start in tonight’s Europa League fixture.
