Ozil contract talks boost

Talks over extending Mesut Ozil's contract at Arsenal are "going in a positive way", according to the players agent.

Ozil could be back in contention for the Gunners' trip to Watford on Saturday after recovering from a knee injury which kept him out of international duty as Germany secured their place at the 2018 World Cup.

The 28-year-old joined Arsenal from Real Madrid in a then club-record £42.5million deal in September 2013, but as yet has not penned a new contract.

There had been suggestions the German playmaker could be sold in January to avoid him leaving on a free transfer in the summer.

Inter Milan, Besiktas and Manchester United, now managed by his former Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho, have all been touted as possible destinations for a player said to be seeking a salary in the region of £300,000-per-week.

Ozil's representative Dr Erkut Sogut, however, suggested in quotes to Turkish media outlet Fanatik that the German could well be staying put.

Sogut said: "Ozil wants to play another two to three years in the Premier League.

"Our contacts with Arsenal continue and are going in a positive way."
