Mesut Ozil renews executive box at Arsenal in clear indication he will sign new deal at the Emirates

MESUT OZIL has given a clear indication that he is staying with Arsenal by renewing his executive box at the Emirates.

Ozil’s advisers have given the impression that the forward will be in demand this summer.

But they are waiting for some serious interest in the Gunners star, 28.

Although contract talks are ongoing with the German, the fact his hospitality package has been renewed heavily hints he is going nowhere.

Arsenal’s record £42.5million signing and Alexis Sanchez are about to enter the final year of their deals and have been offered approaching £300,000 a week to extend their stay.

Yet they are still stalling while their agents weigh up all options, with Manchester City and Bayern Munich linked with bids for striker Sanchez, 28.

Boss Arsene Wenger is eager to get on with his summer spending and is already back at work after a two-week holiday.

He would like his major signings in place before the team flies to Australia in 17 days for their pre-season tour.

But his plans are being hampered by the situation with Sanchez and Ozil.

Ex-Team Sky legal expert Huss Fahmy has been appointed by Arsenal to speed up talks which have dragged on for more than a year.

Fahmy has already contacted the star duo’s advisers since beginning his new job at the start of the month.

But the club still have no idea when they will get a definitive answer from Sanchez and Ozil about their future plans.

If the Gunners do manage to tie down the attacking duo they may be forced to offload other players to ensure they meet short-term cost control regulations.

Teams in the English top-flight are allowed to increase their wage budget by £7million each year.

And the Gunners are in danger of going over that if they give their two stars a bumper pay day.
