Mesut Ozil has ‘agreed’ to sign a new contract at Arsenal, providing they meet two conditions, according to reports.
Arsenal and Ozil have been locked in talks to renew the German’s contract at the Emirates Stadium throughout the year, with the club keen to improve their star player’s deal.
He had reportedly delayed contract talks at the start of the season, but it has now claimed that there has been a breakthrough in negotiations.
Ozil’s current contract expires in 2018, but German magazine SportBild claim he has agreed to extend terms by another two years.
The publication adds that the 27-year-old will only sign the two deal if two conditions are met, one of which is that he receives the ‘chief number’ 10 shirt, which has been vacant since Jack Wilshere joined Bournemouth on loan.
The second condition is that Arsenal strengthen their squad enough to challenge for the Premier League and Champions League.
Ozil currently earns just under £140,000 a week, but will see his wage increase to just under £200,000.
