Per-the-source, Ozil will put pen-to-paper on a bumper new deal with the Gunners and may be able to wear his favourite N0.10 jersey.
The news had Arsenal fans jumping for joy and here a selection of those tweets form Arsenal fans.
I'm now imagining Alexis, Xhaka and Perez pinning Wilshere against the wall while Ozil cuts the #10 off Wilsh's shirt and puts it on his own

News that Mesut Ozil has signed a new contract and will get the # 10 jersey is amazing! Sorry Jack, Arsene doesn't have 20 more years.

If Ozil is getting #10, that's it for Wilshere at Arsenal.

If Ozil does get number 10 it doesn't mean anything for Wilshere and AFC. Lad's Arsenal through and through. Will just choose another number

Hope the rumour about Ozil signing a new contact and taking the no. 10 shirt is true, be pure buzzing🐝

The No.10 shirt is currently occupied by Jack Wilshere. However, the England international is on a season-long loan at Bournemouth.
Ozil currently has two years remaining on his current deal with Arsenal and was linked with a move away from north London by The Sun.
The 27-year-old is once again expected to be included in the Arsenal starting lineup which takes on FC Basel in the UEFA Champions League tonight.
Arsenal take on the newly promoted Burnley FC this weekend where they will be looking to continue their winning run.
