Mesut Ozil, signed for £42.4million, is finally reminding, rather than showing, the world of his amazing talents and fast becoming the leader of our team.
Hailed as Dennis Bergkamp’s heir apparent upon his arrival, Ozil is shaping his Arsenal career in a similar, yet slightly distinct, way.

Arsenal observers around the world will know that Ozil has been a different animal since returning from his knee injury in February. Arsene Wenger finally curbed his stubbornness and moved the German back in his preferred position and, as a team, we haven’t looked back since.
