It may be over a week since the dramatic closure of the summer transfer window in the Football Transfer Tavern but Arsenal supporters are still celebrating the stunning capture of the one of the world’s best players.
Arsene Wenger pulled a massive rabbit out of his hat by landing Real Madrid midfielder Mesut Ozil on deadline day after the two clubs agreed a record fee of around £42.5 million while the Gunners will pay the German international nearly £200,000-a-week.
Ozil could now make his debut for the Gunners at the Stadium of Light on Saturday afternoon as Wenger’s side take on Sunderland following the international break.
Just yesterday reports emerged from Mail Online that Ozil had outsold Real Madrid’s world record signing Gareth Bale in the race to sell more replica shirts with the former Werder Bremen man outstripping the Welsh international by a ratio of five to one!
This goes to show just how excited Gunners supporters are by the arrival of the 24-year-old in North London and now a viral image pinned to the noticeboard take things one step further by suggesting that the answer to all of Arsenal’s problems is indeed the classy German midfielder thay can’t stop talking about.
We are now expecting all school textbooks in Highbury and Islington to be updated accordingly for the correct answer as Ozil becomes the answer to Arsenal’s issues at the Emirates Stadium.
