Arsenal star Mesut Ozil says talks over a contract extension will resume after initial discussions were held in the summer.
The German is tied down to the Gunners until 2018, and any hopes the club had of extending his future were held up by his involvement at Euro 2016 with Germany.
However Ozil says he is now ready to re-open the negotiations and Gunners fans will be hoping he puts pen to paper, sooner rather than later.
“I have a contract until 2018,” Ozil told German publication Express. “We have had discussions, but they were suspended for the European Championship.
“I wanted to focus at this time only on the national team. Now we look to continue the negotiations.”
Pressed on his future after Arsenal, Ozil admits that moving to the MLS later in his career could be an option, but that his short-term future at least looks to be at the Emirates.
“In football, you can never say never,” he added. You don’t know what will happen. I had a good time in Germany. That was a lot of fun.
“Eventually [moving to MLS] could be an option. I have fun everywhere. My fans know that I like to spend my vacation in Los Angeles, because the city inspires me.”
