Mesut Ozil has signed a new contract at Arsenal, according to midfield teammate Mohamed Elneny.
Ozil’s contract at Arsenal expires in the summer but it was reported on Wednesday that he had agreed to extend his terms.
The signing of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is said to be the key behind the German’s decision to stay at the Emirates Stadium.
Ozil teased that he had signed a new contract earlier in the week, but Elneny has now confirmed the news.

“I spoke to Mesut and he told me that he signed the new contract. He is a world class player on and off the pitch,” Elneny told BeIN Sports.
“He is a vital player for us and there is always a positive aura surrounding him.”
