In an exlcusive interview with Kicker, Arsenal’s Mesut Özil says he would like to know whether Arsene Wenger is staying at the club, before deciding on a contract extension. The Arsenal manager was the key catalyst in bringing Özil to London from Real Madrid. Wenger’s contract ends this year.
“I am very, very happy at Arsenal and have let the club know that I would be ready to sign a new contract. The fans want that I stay and now it is just down to the club.
“The club knows that I am here most of all because of Arsène Wenger. He is the one who signed me and he is the one whose trust I have. The club also knows that I want to be clear what the manager is going to [in the future].”
