It finally: happened Mesut Özil extended his contract, with Hector Bellerín rather summing up Arsenal fans’ feelings towards the news.
It proved to be a hectic transfer window for the Gunners – even busier than the summer – with several high-profile names arriving and departing.
Francis Coquelin, Mathieu Debuchy, Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sánchez all left, but Konstantinos Mavropanos, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were brought in.
Giroud left for rivals Chelsea on deadline day, which eventually had the domino effect of Aubameyang joining from Borussia Dortmund after a great deal of Shakespearean drama.
But there was more good news to come, as it was announced Mesut Özil had extended his contract until 2021.
The former FC Schalke and Werder Bremen maestro had been linked with a move out of the Emirates with his contract nearing the last few months.
As expected, the news delivered a considerable amount of fanfare from the Arsenal fanbase, who were both delighted and relieved.
Teammate and Arsenal defender Hector Bellerín got in on the act, with his feelings encapsulating many supporters perfectly.
It has proven to be another struggling season for the North London side – the defeat to Swansea means Arsenal now sit eight points off of fourth-placed Chelsea.
However, the extension will come as boost ahead of the cup final against Manchester City on the 25th February.
