The Gunners are reported to be negotiating with Mesut Ozil a new deal that will earn the Germany international £300,000 (more than 350,000 euros) a week, if he really signs such a contract he will become Arsenal’s highest paid player ever, but according to former Liverpool and Newcastle midfielder Dietmar Hamann, not only his compatriot, but no Arsenal player deserves that kind of money.
Mesut Ozil’s performances have been questioned. He’s never been a player to perform over the entire season and when he’s on, Ozil is as good to watch as any top player
the former Germany international wrote in his Paddy Power column.
However, there’s definitely games where he hasn’t offered enough at all. A player like him should be creating two or three chances a match – even on an off day. You know what you get with Ozil as a valuable player to Arsenal, but does he do it in the big games often enough? Probably not…
Hamann wrote, before sharing his belief that
he doesn’t deserve a reported £300,000-a-week contract extension, in fact, no player in that entire Gunners squad is worth that kind of money.
Ozil’s current deal expires in 14 months, so Arsenal are really eager to renew it as soon as possible.
