Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has claimed that there is a very small chance of him departing the Emirates Stadium this summer.

German midfielder’s future with the North London club has once again come under question throughout the 2018/19 campaign, having found himself in and out of the starting XI since the arrival of Unai Emery.

However, the 30-year-old playmaker intends to see out the two years he has left on his current deal witt the Gunners and insists that he is happy to play under Unai Emery.

“I don’t think there’s a chance of [leaving] to be honest. I’ve got two more years here and what happens afterwards is not in my hands. We’ll see then, but I’m proud to be at this club and really happy at this club,” Ozil told DAZN Dach.

“If the coach speaks to me and tells me I won’t play in a game it’s something I need to accept and just get on with it. I’ve carried on working on making myself as fit and healthy as I could and it’s worked out for me. Now I’m playing, but of course it’s the coach’s decision if I play or not.

“I’ve had some injuries this season and I’ve had to miss some games. But I know when I’m fit I’ll play matches. I know the quality I have. I think everyone has their qualities and mine are at number 10.

“If the coach wants me to do something and play somewhere else, you have to accept it and do that. That’s something I’ve done and as a player and you just need to get on with what you’re told.”

Ozil has played in just 24 of the Gunners 38 Premier League appearences during the 2018-19 season, founding back of the net five times and creating two more.
