But the German World Cup winner has found himself frozen out since.
Fenerbahce have been linked with the star, who has one year remaining on his £350,000-a-week contract at the Emirates.
But according to his agent Erkut Sogut, he is "90 per cent" likely to remain in North London until 2021.

Turkey Says France Should Refrain From Escalating Mediterranean Tensions
ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Friday France should refrain from steps that escalate tensions in the eastern Mediterranean, where Ankara is embroiled in a dispute with Greece over Turkish oil and gas exploration in disputed waters.
Switzerland has offered to mediate in the row and Turkey has agreed in principle, Cavusoglu told a televised news conference with his Swiss counterpart in Bern, adding Greece will get a response if it provokes the Turkish Oruc Reis survey vessel in the region.
The French military conducted training exercises with Greek forces in the region on Thursday, according to defence sources.
