Any other club would have moved heaven and earth to ensure a fresh contract for a player of his callibre and whom the club had badly missed during their woeful form of late when Ozil was out with a nagging knee injury. While the terms offered to Ozil are indeed massive but they are justified and deserved for a player who has created the MAXIMUM number of chances in the entire League since his arrival. The Mesut Ozil contract extension with Arsenal feels like an event or a cause for huge celebration among the entire fan base and why not. The player who not only has the most number of Premier League assists since he has signed but also the most number of chances created in the league had been in the last six months of his contract but will now stay for another three years at the club which is now as much his as is ours.
Since 2006, Mesut Ozil is the only player to have created over 1000 goalscoring chances within the big 5 European leagues. Assist king. pic.twitter.com/ONwJ7uuDt1— Football Facts (@FootbalIFact) January 31, 2018
Truly the assist king and one of the best midfielders to have ever plied their trade in the premier League, when a player like that signs for Arsenal when he could have walked right out the door in the summer, the enormous satisfaction and sheer joy about the Mesut Ozil contract extension cannot be just expressed in words. Well this is for the clubs who were licking their lips at jumping on the German with their oil money and Mourinho sized noses : lost Giroud to Chelsea and Alexis to Manchester But from the ashes that remain we have managed to put together a strike force that will even make the likes of Real Madrid and Bayern Munich rubbing their hands in admiration. After all we have Lazacette, Mikhitaryan, Aubameyang and Ozil to decimate all that stands in front of us. All we need right now is to figure out a formation featuring their presence in the same lineup without compromising with our defensive stability. Lets see how it all pans out in the coming months
49 – Since his @premierleague debut in 2013, Mesut Ozil has created more goalscoring chances (458) and provided more assists (49) than any other player in the competition. Extension. pic.twitter.com/VSHwHbtm6T— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) January 31, 2018
