Arsenal fans will be intrigued to see what business the club will do in January now they’ve got a clear direction they want to go in after the appointment of Mikel Arteta. One rumoured incoming has been AC Milan creative midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu, but some fans weren’t happy with AFTV comparing him to Mesut Ozil.
The Mirror have said Arsenal believe a loan deal can be agreed over the 25-year-old who’s started 18 Serie A games this season. Milan sit in 10th after a disappointing season so far, and he’s only scored two goals and made one assist. However, he can play right across the midfield and attacking lines.
When AFTV tweeted a video which summed up the latest rumours surrounding the player, they labelled him the ‘new Ozil’. That didn’t go down well with many Arsenal fans who don’t believe the player they’ve been linked with deserves to be put in the same bracket as their highest-paid player.

This guy is the new Ozil like Thomas Eisfeld is the new Bergkamp.

Ozil is a unique player, world class. He has 100+ assists. We can’t expect to replace him. Let’s work on finding the next Lampard or De Bruyne instead. Like a super-Ramsey.
