Arsene Wenger has made a new attempt to secure the future of one of his most important players at the club, if emerging reports are anything to go by.
The Arsenal manager was only able to bring in two players during the summer as the likes of Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette agreed to move to the Emirates stadium.
An erratic start to the season has seen Wenger receive severe criticism again, especially for how he has supposedly mishandled the contract situation of key star Mesut Ozil.
Indeed, reports are now suggesting that the Gunners are to make a last-ditch attempt to convince the midfielder into renewing his contract.
According to the Mirror, Ozil has been offered a new deal at the club which will be worth a whopping £275,000-a-week in wages.
The new move from Wenger’s side is to try to stop the 29-year-old from leaving in January, following rumours that he could join top four rivals Manchester United.
Should Ozil accept Arsenal’s new contract offer, he would become the highest paid player in the club’s history.
