Goal's Arsenal correspondent Chris Wheatley believes the German will eventually a sign an extension once Arsene Wenger's future is clarified

Mesut Ozil has confirmed that he will wait to see what Arsene Wenger does before signing a new contract with Arsenal.

Goal brought you the exclusive news back in October that the Germany international's future is reliant on Wenger, whose own deal expires at the end of the season.

Ozil's current contract expires in the summer of 2018 along with team-mate Alexis Sanchez, with both players happy at the club and expected to eventually put pen-to-paper.

However, Ozil is waiting to see whether Wenger extends his contact before committing his own future to the club.

Arsenal correspondent Chris Wheatley provides a summary of Ozil's latest comments in the video above and explains why his relationship with Wenger has always been key to his latest contract negotiations.
