The 31-year-old former German international signed a new 3-year contract with the Gunners in 2018 that extended his stay at the Emirates until 2021.
Mesut Ozil has claimed that he intends to see out his £350,000 a week contract with Arsenal that would see the German remain at the club until 2021.
The German assist-master joined the Gunners from La Liga giants Real Madrid in 2013 and has gone on to become one of the most important players for the side.
Despite his impressive services for the club, which include Ozil providing 53 assists to his teammates in 178 league appearances for the Gunners, he looked destined to leave the Emirates before the arrival of Mikel Arteta as he was frozen out by ex-boss Unai Emery.
However, as the 31-year-old has now claimed, the confidence given to him by his new manager has convinced the former Real Madrid man to remain in North London for the remainder of his contract.
