Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is set to sign a new contract to become the highest earner at the club.

According to The Mirror, Ozil and Arsenal have reached an agreement over the extension of his current contract.

Ozil will now earn £225k-per-week, making him the highest paid player at the club – unless Sanchez signs his latest offer.

Arsenal have reportedly offered Sanchez a new £300k-per-week deal in an attempt to keep him at the club this summer.

Sanchez’s future is still in doubt but it appears as though Ozil will be staying loyal to the club and put pen to paper on a new deal.

Ozil has one year left on his current contract with the club but is now expected to commit his long-term future to Arsenal with this bumper offer.

The German international, unlike Sanchez, is currently playing for Arsenal against Leicester in the opening game of the Premier League season.
