I don’t know if anyone knows but Arsenal signed Mesut Ozil on deadline day?
Gunners fans have not been this excited since they last won a trophy – eight years ago incidentally – and have been busy claiming their latest German star is ready to help them challenge for the top honours once more.
The £42.5 million signing is the second biggest figure paid by a British club for a player in Premier League history, whilst the fee has smashed Arsenal’s own transfer record by £27 million.
