Former Germany captain Michael Ballack has advised Mesut Ozil to leave Arsenal and join Bayern Munich, if he wants to win titles.
“Mesut is an amazing player. He knows that he is one of the undisputed stars at Arsenal,” the 40 year old told German newspaper Bild. “A lot of clubs would love to have him.
“He lives in London, one of the most beautiful cities ever. To this end, Arsenal is a club that has an incredible impact on the world.
“If you are a top player in England, the cult around you is bigger than in Germany. You are treated more respectfully, especially. These are all reasons for an extension.
“But if he wants to win a major title, he has a bigger chance to achieve that at Bayern.”
Ozil joined Arsenal from Real Madrid in 2013, where he won the La Liga title and Copa del Rey.
The 28 year old has been named Germany’s player of the year for the past five years.
