Mesut Ozil says he is focused on giving his all for Arsenal amid the constant speculation linking the midfielder with a move away from the Emirates.

The German midfielder is in the final year of his contract at Arsenal, with several newspapers last week claiming he told team-mates he would be making a January move to Manchester United.

However, Ozil told fans to "ignore the noise" regarding the persistent rumours, indicating his mind was focused only on last weekend's match against Everton.

A man-of-the-match performance followed from the 29-year-old, and he subsequently received praise from owner Stan Kroenke, who told the Daily Telegraph of his desire to keep both Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.

"It's very nice to hear that [Kroenke's comments] and to see that - he's the major shareholder," Ozil told Sky Sports.

"I'm happy here, and I do my job to 100 per cent as I always have. I give everything and leave it all on the pitch for the team.
