Arsenal sign Mesut Ozil on deadline day 1

Posted on September 03, 2013 by Crippy Cooke

Arsenal and manager Arsene Wenger pulled off the shock coup of deadline day in signing Real Madrid playmaker Mesut Ozil.

The German attacking midfielder, 24, signed for the Gunners in a deal said to be worth around £42.4M (€50M).

Last season, Ozil made 16 assists in 32 La Liga games – scoring nine goals. He’s regarded as one of the top-5 playmakers in the world, and many are stunned how Arsenal managed to procure the signature of a genuine world-class player.

Supporters are rejoicing that manager Arsene Wenger has finally spent big to strengthen the side, and they are now licking their lips in anticipation to see Ozil in action for Arsenal.
