The Germany international was unable to prevent the Gunners making a last-16 exit in the Champions League on Tuesday night after Arsenal came agonisingly close to a remarkable comeback.
Ozil was praised for his performance at Stade Louis II as the 26-year-old continued his recent promising form after having spent three months on the sidelines with a knee injury.
The £42.5m signing has struggled to find consistency in the past 18 months since his Premier League move, but Ozil quashed talk of a possible return to Germany at the end of the season.
“A return to Germany is not an option for me right now. I am really happy at Arsenal and I want this to continue,” Ozil is quoted as saying by London Evening Standard.
“I played in the Bundesliga and at Real Madrid. But the English Premier League is the strongest league in the world. Opponents never give up. Even if we’re 3-0 in front with Arsenal, the players never give up and fight until the very last second.”
Ozil has scored three goals and has made five assists in 14 Premier League appearances this season.
The Arsenal midfielder swapped Real Madrid for the Gunners in 2013, and the World Cup winner helped Arsenal land the FA Cup at Wembley last May.
