Ozil Enjoys A Day Of Sightseeing In London… But Is He Taking One Last Tour Of The Capital Before Leaving This Summer?
Have Gunners contract rebel Mesut Ozil enjoyed the sights of London for one last time before parting ways with Arsenal at the end of the season?
Ozil’s current contract with Arsenal is set to expire at the end of the next season and the German superstar has stalled negotiations over a new deal.
The Gunners hierarchy are keen on tying down their key player but the former Real Madrid star has now been linked with a move away from the North London club in the summer.
And Ozil took time out of his busy schedule to visit Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.
He took to Twitter and posted a video of himself posing for a selfie outside one of London’s most iconic landmarks, and said: “Being a tourist today #London.”
The German midfielder has now spent nearly four years in the English capital after his move from Real Madrid to Arsenal.
However, it is believed that his time in the city is coming to an end after Ozil had hinted his frustration at Arsenal’s lack of ambition and a winning mentality. He wants to win more trophies and has been left frustrated with the Gunners’ failure to clinch any silverware.
Ozil is the highest paid player at Arsenal and takes home a £140,000-per-week wage packet, but now the German has refused to sign a £250,000-per-week with the Gunners.

He is one of the key players at the club but it is believed that the German now wants to test new waters as the Gunners are struggling to finish in the top four this season.
Arsenal are now sixth in the Premier League table – nine points behind third placed Liverpool – but with two games in hand.
