Mesut Ozil has insisted he is very happy at Arsenal, but admits “something is not working with the team” at the moment.
Ozil has about 15 months left on his current deal with Gunners and this week, manager Arsene Wenger revealed that contract talks with the German and Alexis Sanchez, have been put on hold.
“The fact is I’ve still got a contract in London,” Ozil said in quotes reported by the Mirror.
“To speculate now would be wrong. At the end of the season we will see, there will be talks. I’m very happy at Arsenal and in London.”
Arsenal are currently sixth in the Premier League, after losing four of their last five matches and Ozil says something is surely off.
“We are having a difficult phase. Somehow something is not working with the team,” Ozil said.
“We are letting in a lot of goals. Maybe it’s down to self-belief. When I look at the quality of Arsenal though I’m convinced we will get on a run again soon.”
