Arsenal star urges Arsene Wenger to strengthen squad

Mesut Ozil has once again hinted that his future at Arsenal will depend on the decision made by manager Arsene Wenger over whether he stays or leaves this summer.

Ozil's current deal runs out at the end of next season and talks over an extension have now been put off until the summer.

But the faltering stars have extra incentive to join Europe's elite knowing they will pocket an extra £200,000 each if they can make their way into the top four.

"I can not tell you now when the announcement will come because I don't know".

"I can understand the subject is of interest but to me what is of interest is what's happening on the football pitch".

He added: "I'm very happy".

It suggests that I do my job, to plan for the future of the club.

The post I have Wenger's trust, he's a superb coach, says Ozil appeared first on Vanguard News.

The Chilean has been Arsenal's standout performer in the Premier League this season and has scored 18 goals for the Gunners in the top flight.

Indeed asked if Walcott had the qualities to captain England, Wenger said: 'I think if you can captain a club team you can captain the national team, it's similar. We need to think towards next season. As a player you want more, you want to win the league.

"We have shown we are united, focused and determined to do things right again. That is what's at stake basically".

Arsenal are seven points behind fourth-placed Manchester City with two games in hand ahead of the trip to Selhurst Park.

Sam Allardyce's side saw their four-game winning streak come to an end in a 3-1 defeat at Southampton on Wednesday and they will be without a host of players including France midfielder Yohan Cabaye due to injury on Monday.

Mesut Ozil, Olivier Giroud and Walcott all found the net in the match which saw Arsenal win their first Premier League match since February. I have a connection with the club. But usually that is left more to defenders, to defensive positions, because they are more focused and they see what is in front of them more than strikers.
