Ozil to decide Arsenal future soon
Mesut Ozil’s long term future Arsenal has been subject to much speculation over the past few months and it is widely believed that the German international could potentially end up leaving the Emirates Stadium next summer if he does not sign a new contract.
Ozil has finally gone on to provide an update regarding his contractual situation at Arsenal and has hinted that he could extend his stay with the North London side beyond the end of the current campaign.
He told German newspaper Welt am Sonntag, "You think Wenger tells the journalists [about my future] before he tells me? I know him differently. I have a contract until 2018 in London and I feel very comfortable there. We'll talk soon and then make a decision."
Dusan Tadic on Arsenal’s radar
Having failed once again to mount a genuine bid for the Premier League title, Arsenal will most certainly have to strengthen their squad next summer and a host of players are already being linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium in recent weeks.
Now in reports from Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb, revelations have been made that Arsenal are weighing up a move for Southampton playmaker Dusan Tadic and the Gunners are said to be attracted towards the Serbian international due to his reported release clause of around only £13million.
Giroud can see himself playing under Mourinho and Conte
Olivier Giroud has been a very divisive figure among the Arsenal fans over the years due to his lack of mobility which contrasts the Gunners’ attractive style of football but it has to be said that the Frenchman does boast a decent record of 94 goals in 215 appearances for the club.
Giroud has recently been speaking about his playing style in an interview with L'Equipe Magazine and has stated that he is versatile enough to be able to adapt to the tactics of Jose Mourinho or Antonio Conte as well.
When asked if he could play under Mourinho or Conte, he said, "As an idea, why not? Each experience is good to live through. I would adapt.
“At Montpellier in 2011-12, Rene Girard was of the fighting mentality, of a player who never gave up, of open-mindedness, of fight. A barker. We were the champions of France with him."
