Reports from London are claiming that Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal to stay at the club until 2021.
The BBC reported on Wednesday that the German, 29, becomes the highest-paid player in the cluba��s history, earning about A?350,000 a week before tax.
Ozil had been linked with an Arsenal exit at the end of the season when his previous contract was due to expire, but he has now had a turnaround and decided to stay at the Emirates until he is 32.
Ozil has made 21 appearances this season, scoring four goals and recording six assists.
Ozila��s deal comes a day after Arsenala��s embarrassing 3-1 Premier League defeat to Swansea. But the deal, along with the A?56m record signing pf striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund, will go some way in softening the blow of the defeat.
