Mesut Ozil has signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal, according to BBC Sport.

The 29-year-old is understood to have put pen to paper on a new three-and-a-half-year deal at the Emirates Stadium, keeping him at the Premier League club until 2021.

Ozil is now The Gunners’ highest-paid player in the club’s history, earning around £350,000-a-week before tax.

However, there has been no official confirmation from the club, as of yet.

The Germany international, who won the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, has scored four goals and provided seven assists in 21 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal so far this season.

Ozil extends his stay in North London after months of speculation surrounding his long-term future at the club, whose previous deal was due to expire in June 2018.

The central midfielder arrived at the Emirates Stadium back in September 2013 from Real Madrid in a then club record £42.4m transfer, going on to net 36 goals in 182 games overall for Arsene Wenger’s side.

He has won three FA Cups and an FA Community Shield with The Gunners.

Ozil was linked with a free transfer to Premier League rivals Manchester United this summer.
