Arsene Wenger discussed reported Barcelona transfer target Mesut Ozil in press conference on Friday.

When asked about a new contract for Ozil, Wenger was candid on whether or not a deal was close, and if he’ll stay at the club till the end of the season.

"How close? I don't know how close,"

"We have never been approached by Man United anyway so I don't see why that came up. That is something that has been created.

“[He'll stay] until the end of the season, the rest is open."

I think what is pretty clear over the last year or so when it comes to Arsene Wenger’s relationship with both Mesut Ozil and fellow Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez is that he has no clue what’s going on with them, or he has no desire to be clear what’s going on with either player.

Wenger can say what he wants about both of these players, but it still remains vastly unclear as to what will happen with Ozil in January, or this upcoming summer.
