Though the January transfer window threatened to be a thoroughly miserable time for the Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern, it seems like the club have done their very best to impress the Gunners’ faithful. Indeed, though Alexis Sanchez departed, the arrivals of Pierre-Emerick Aubamayeng and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have delighted our north London locals.
As if that wasn’t enough, the fact that star man Mesut Ozil has signed a new deal at the Emirates has had our punters dancing on the pool tables. The German is one of the most popular figures at the club and a report from the Independent has shed some interesting light on the World Cup winner’s life behind the scenes at London Colney.
According to them, figures at Arsenal’s training ground have been impressed with Ozil’s ‘industry’ and ‘intensity’ in the last few months, despite constant speculation in regard to his future. Mirror that with Alexis Sanchez and you can see exactly why our Gooners here love the former Real Madrid man oh so much.
Things aren’t perfect for Arsenal, but life for Ozil looks to be a happy one.
Perhaps, now, Ozil can really kick on. When in full flow, there are few better sights in English football than the German pulling the strings in the attacking third and maybe his improved effort on the training pitch will go some way into changing the public perception of him.
