Lucas Perez told that his teammate and gunners Midfielder Mesut Ozil is not going to return to Real Madrid.

Reports in Germany have suggested the former Real Madrid star would jump at the chance to return to the Bernabeu.

But Spanish striker Perez, also 28, said: “No, I don’t think Ozil wants to return to Spain.

“You never know. Real Madrid is a big club – but so is Arsenal.”

Ozil has shone in North London since his £42.5million move to Arsenal in September 2013.

The midfielder has scored six so far this season and was man of the match against Ludogorets on Wednesday after scoring a brilliant Champions League hat-trick.

Ozil is reportedly close to agreeing a new contract with the Gunners, as are Alexis Sanchez and boss Arsene Wenger.

And Wenger has urged assist-king Ozil to sign a new deal as he is in “the right place”.

He said: “We are always in touch and that’s our desire.

“Mesut Ozil is 28 years old. He is in the prime of his career. We want him to contribute to the success of the club in the future.

“They want to be happy. They are happy at the club and I want them to commit to the club because I believe they are in the right place.”
