Werder Bremen youngster Mesut Ozil impressed on his World Cup debut. The 21-year-old was undeniably the driving force behind Germany’s obliteration of Australia.
His range of clever passes, his relentless ability to find space, and his snappy instincts made him an absolute pleasure to watch and an infinite nightmare to deal with defensively.
The only serious criticism that could be aimed at the youngster was his inability to get on the score-sheet himself, in spite of several decent opportunities.
The Turkish born striker has attracted interest from a number of clubs. Manchester United know that beyond Rooney the less than spectacular Berbatov has his work cut out to avoid this being his last season at Old Trafford.
And despite all Manchester United’s protestation’s to the contrary, their budget is embedded in the Bargain Basement zone this window and Ozil would be an attractively priced signing.
The maths aren’t difficult. Two Milners or an Ozil?
Arsenal have got players missing from all over their squad and it wouldn’t take much to highlight the attraction of getting a young, promising player in to bolster the Gunners’ ambitions to remain a Top 4 team.
But the latest contender to re-home the player are Totenham. Harry’s post match comments on Keane in the states were pretty unconvincing and when Keane himself was asked about his future his response was to strop off. Player of some pre-season tea party Bob may be, but it difficult to imagine his popularity at White Hart being any lower.
