The 29-year-old’s contract expires at the end of the season and speculation regarding his future dominated transfer headlines over the summer.
But according to The Sun , Ozil will only sign a new deal if Jack Wilshere gives up the number 10 shirt.
It is thought he wants to change from his current number 11 so that he can boost his brand.
His business is based around the number 10 and his clothing line features caps labelled ‘M10’, while his Instagram handle is m10_official.
The German now wears the number for his country and ended his spell at Real Madrid wearing it as well.
He’s played nine times for Arsenal this season, scoring once and providing two assists.
The Gunners are currently sixth in the Premier League, 12 points behind leaders Manchester City.
They return to action next weekend as they host fierce rivals Tottenham.
