Agent reveals Ozil transfer plans at Arsenal

The agent of Mesut Ozil says he's staying with Arsenal for next season.

Dr Erkut Sogut says Ozil will stay in north London at least until the expiry of his current deal in June 2021.

Despite continuing speculation over his future - Sogut insists Ozil is going nowhere yet.

“At the moment, we don't even talk about it, because he still has one-and-a-half-years left," he told the i.

“He still has 15 months to go. Until then, he will stay at Arsenal, for sure. He will stay until the end of his contract. There's no chance he'll leave.

“He is going into the end of this contract, he will be 32 years old, he will be a free agent, and it's not a bad situation.

“And he will have probably a hundred million followers on the social media side at that time, his marketing will be bigger by that time. And he's 32 so he can still go and play in top-level football for the next two or three years."
