Cape Town - Arsenal play-maker Mesut Ozil is close to signing a new contract with the Gunners, according to British media reports.

The German World Cup winner's current deal runs out at the end of the 2017/18 season, but Arsenal are confident of wrapping up negotiations in the next couple of weeks.

According to reports, the terms for the 28-year-old's proposed new deal are around £280 000 a week, which would make him the club's top earner, although it's believed that Ozil was originally holding out for closer to £350 000.

Ozil and Chile international forward Alexis Sanchez have both been linked with moves away from Emirates Stadium this summer, with Sanchez attracting interest from some of Europe's biggest clubs.

Ozil signed for the north Londoners in a £42.5 million deal from Real Madrid in 2013.
