Mesut Ozil wants Arsenal to offer him reassurances over Arsene Wenger’s future at the club before he signs a new deal.
‘The club knows that I am here, most of all, because of Arsene Wenger,’ Ozil told German football magazine Kicker.
‘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 do [in the future].
‘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 me to stay and now it is just down to the club.’
