Mesut Ozil has finally spoken and from his statement, we can now see why he has still not signed a new contract at Arsenal.

The current contract of the German international expires in 2018 and negotiations for an extension hasn't gone so well so far.

Speculations claim he isn't satisfied with the wage offer being presented to him but it looks as if that isn't the major reason for the delay after all.

The World Cup winner has stated that he will only commit his future to the club if and only if Wenger stays beyond the end of this season.

"I feel very, very good with Arsenal and have shown my willingness to extend my contract with the club," he told German magazine Kicker.

"The fans want me to stay. Now it's down to the club. The club know that I'm here above all because of Arsene Wenger, who brought me here and whose trust in me I enjoy.

"The club also know that I want to have clarity about what the manager is doing."

Wenger is yet to put pen to paper in order to stretch his stay beyond the end of the season. He has asked the club to wait till April before involving him in any talks and this is why Ozil is also refusing to sign.
