Competition for Mesut Ozil
Let’s face it, Mesut Ozil just hasn’t produced to the levels expected since becoming Arsenal’s club-record signing and it’s time the Gunners get serious about the matter. With his contract due to expire at the end of next season, the obvious suggestion would be to sell, but bringing in a player truly capable of competing for Ozil’s No.10 spot could be a smarter strategy, bucking the German World Cup winner’s ideas up whilst improving the depth of the squad. Is it worth making a signing just to motivate a current player? Perhaps not, but Fekir can play in other positions – he’s started up front for Lyon seven times this term and scored thrice – so it’s not a case of simply choosing between Ozil and Fekir for every match.
