Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil wants the club to guarantee him Jack Wilshere’s No.10 shirt before signing any new deal with the club.

The Germany international is out of contract at the end of the season and free to agree a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs in January.

Arsenal had been confident of tying the German down to a new long-term deal given the lack of interest in him last summer but Ozil wants a huge wage increase and is now wanted by Manchester United.
