The German World Cup winner has been at the centre of a standoff with the north London club over a new deal for over a year now, with his current contract set to expire in the summer.
Ozil has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester United, and a reunion with his former manager Jose Mourinho, but there’s still time for anything to happen – and ArsenalFanTv seems to have heard a few whispers on the grapevine about a potential renewal:
There are rumours going around that Mesut Özil will sign a new deal with Arsenal, but Alexis Sanchez will leave the club… pic.twitter.com/b92OOIjXea

As you can imagine, once Robbie and co got involved, the rumour mill was sent into overdrive and the majority of Gooners seem keen for the midfielder to stay-put:
I'd rather keep Ozil tbh. He's been on fire. Sanchez has looked really sluggish in the last few games! https://t.co/UjB8yr4L2t

Ozil been a different class for months now. Sanchez the worst player on the field at times

I do wholeheartedly believe it is easier to replace Alexis than Ozil.

So rumours going around that Ozil is going to sign a new deal but Sanchez will leave. I honestly can't wait till next month, let's see who does what. Kinda getting tired of these two dancing around the issue. It's not good for the club. #AFC #WeAreTheArsenal

Ozil signing a new contract then according to a rumour on here. If that's true and we can somehow swap Alexis with Draxler then I'll be very happy.

My view had always been keep Ozil you need someone who can do what he does the passing the control

#Arsenal should break the bank to keep Ozil. He cares about the club. Alexis..Not so much. Get a good deal for him and bring in someone of world class ability.

So, how do we think all of this will plan out?
Will Ozil still be an Arsenal player next month?
