Do Mesut Ozil’s London-themed Instagram posts suggest he’s happy at Arsenal?

Is it a sign?

Can an Instagram account give subtle clues as to whether or not a footballer might sign a new contract at a club? Arsenal fans will certainly hope so.

Midfield maestro Mesut Ozil has just six months left on his Gunners deal, and while Alexis Sanchez moved away earlier in the January window, there appears to be confidence that Ozil is more likely to stay than the Chilean.

That feeling might only grow stronger if you read much into Ozil’s social media profile. The London hashtags and theme have been strong recently, suggesting the 29-year-old German is happy where he is.

Ozil has also been out and about in London, taking the Tube to see the sights earlier this week.

Even when he’s in the bathroom Ozil is hashtagging London into his posts.

Of course, all this London love might simply be because he’s thinking of moving elsewhere and will miss living in England’s capital city… who can really say?
