Has Mesut Ozil dropped the biggest hint yet that he’s prepared to extend this Arsenal contract, as if you needed reminding, which is set to expire next summer?

According to reports in the Sun the German has done exactly that as he has renewed his executive box at the Emirates Stadium, a clear indication, surely, of Ozil’s willingness to extend his Arsenal deal.

Why would Ozil renew the box, assuming the Sun is right with the claim made, if he wasn’t staying in North London? Admittedly he wouldn’t be short of offers to take up the chance to use it.

Contract talks with Ozil are ongoing but he, along with Alexis Sanchez, the Chilean in particular, would like to see some ‘major signings in place’ ahead of Arsenal’s pre-season trip to Australia, as would Arsene Wenger of course, before any celebrations can be had about the signing of a new deal.

A positive suggestion Ozil, at least, is some way towards agreeing an extension with the Gunners though.
