Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil says he will put talks over his future at the club on hold until the summer.
According to James Olley of the Evening Standard, Arsenal are looking to make Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez the highest paid player in the history of the Premier League, by offering him a staggering £300,000/week.
Another complication is that if Sanchez were to be paid £300,000 a week, Arsenal's other star player, Mesut Ozil, who will also be out of contract next summer, will expect a similar pay-hike, and it is hard to see the board forking out a whopping £550-600,000 a week for just two players. "We've still got a lot to aim for this season, to try and finish in the top four".
"I'm very happy because I think he has had a very strong season". He is laughing and he said to me last summer "come to Arsenal".
Asked about Ozil's current situation, Wenger said: "It is hard to get distracted".

And Monday's 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace saw renewed calls for the Frenchman to clarify whether he intends to stay or leave the Emirates at the end of the season.
Wenger went on to explain just why Sanchez was playing so well for the Gunners.
Arsenal's struggles have increased the calls for Wenger to step down when his contract expires this summer, but the 67-year-old has refused to disclose his plans.
Ozil said Wenger was the main reason he had made a decision to join the club from Real Madrid in 2013.
"I like Marc Overmars, but he is director of football at Ajax Amsterdam". I'm sure there are plenty of other candidates - I'm not anxious about that. "That's what you have to take care of".
