Mesut Ozil has taken to twitter to announce that he has secured an exciting new opportunity off the pitch. 

The Germany international has been in good form so far this season, scoring nine goals and racking up an impressive six assists in all competitions.

Ozil’s notable displays for much of the campaign appears to have expanded his personal fan base even more and as a result, video game maker Konami have taken advantage of that.

The Japanese company has employed the Arsenal midfielder as the official ambassador for their famous video game series, Pro Evolution Soccer.

Ozil, who is still discussing the possibility of renewing his contract with the Gunners, confirmed the news on social media on Thursday.
