Who was George Graham's first signing for the club?

Comparing the two men in their respective domestic leagues so far this season, it is clear to see who is fairing better based off their stats. Kökcü has scored more goals and provided more assists, and has also averaged more long balls, shots and dribbles per game than Ozil, according to Whoscored.
