Mezut Ozil, 27, has been in negotiations with Arsenal in recent weeks about extending his current deal, which expires in 2018.
According to Bild, the two parties have agreed on a bumper salary and a squad-number swap, which will give Ozil the number 10 jersey.

That shirt is currently occupied by Jack Wilshere , but the midfielder’s long-term future with Arsenal is uncertain given that he joined Bournemouth on a season-long loan in the summer transfer window.

While reports in Germany have suggested that the ink is already dry on Ozil’s new deal, The Mirror claims that it has not yet been finalised, but an agreement is expected to be reached as the 27-year-old is happy in North London.
