Ozil Could Retire at Arsenal
Arsenal talismanic attacking midfielder, Mesut Ozil has revealed he is open to seeing out his football career at Arsenal and believes he can extend his playing days for another eight years, when he’d be 38.
The German playmaker saw his future at Emirates Stadium fall under the microscope last season, as he entered the final year of his contract.
He was, however, to display his commitment to the club by penning fresh terms which are set to take him through to 2021.
Ozil has suggested that he has at least one more renewal in him with the Gunners, with the World Cup winner prepared to consider hanging up his boots in north London.
“Why not? I am still young, I am 30,” he told the Evening Standard.
“In football, everything is possible but I am really happy to play for a big club like Arsenal. I just enjoy it and I can imagine finishing my career at Arsenal.”
Ozil is into his sixth season with the Gunners, having signed from Real Madrid in the summer of 2013.
