Mesut Ozil has explained the reasons behind his decision to extend his contract with Arsenal.
Ozil penned a new deal with the Gunners in January, having had just six months remaining on his previous contract.
The German is now the club’s highest-paid player by far, and says he wanted to stay in north London because he is “really happy”.
“It feels really good,” he told Arsenal Player. “I’m really happy to sign here for such a big club like Arsenal. I’ve always said to the club that I’m happy here and now I’ve signed, I’m really happy.
“My team-mates and family have always supported me. I have a lot of goals here with the team, I want to reach those and I’m really happy.
“I love the city. Before I signed the contract, I spoke with my family about what the best decision was for me. At the end of the day, it was really easy for me to say ‘yes’ to the club. I’m here for more years and I hope we will win some titles with the team. I believe in that.”
