Arsenal press conference live updates as Arsene Wenger discusses Aubameyang, new Ozil deal and Everton clash

Written by admin

Arsene Wenger faces the media on Friday morning ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Everton.

The Gunners were the big spenders on deadline day as they broke their transfer record to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

He arrived at the Emirates in a £56m deal but that wasn’t the only good news at the Emirates.

Arsenal have also tied Mesut Ozil down to a new deal, worth a staggering £350,000-a-week, making him their highest-paid player.

That’s off-field issues dealt with but there are problems on it with Arsenal losing Swansea on Tuesday night.

Everton are in town this weekend and the Toffees have a shocking record in north London.

Wenger will be discussing all those details and much more today.

Welcome

Mesut Ozil’s future has finally been decided with the long-time contract rebel announcing he’s agreed a new deal with Arsenal until 2021.

“Proud to announce: I signed dat thing,” the German tweeted today with a nod to the now-departed Theo Walcott.

He shared his delight at the new deal that will make him one of the highest paid players in the Premier League.

Arsenal has said farewell to Alexis Sanchez, with the Chilean moving to Manchester United in the January transfer window, and Ozil was set to be a free agent in the summer.

But Ozil, who was also tipped to leave the club with United and Barcelona among clubs linked, has won his battle for a pay rise.
