Is Ozil really worth £42 million???


I cant believe Wenger has been bullied into an obsence amount of money for a player they dont need. He isnt a regular starter for Madrid and Arsenal have tons of players who do exactly the same as him.

Surely they should focus on buying a top class striker/defender/def-mid who can score them goals and plug that leaky tap.

For me this stinks of desperation and Arsene breaking his policy of buying unestablished players and then naturing them could lead to Arsenal missing out on the big 4.

Opinions?

Let's compare his CV to Gareth Bale or better yet ask the Madrid players if he's worth 42 mil. pretty sure Arsenal will recoup that money from over excited fans getting his name printed on the back of their shirts around the world

I think its a good deal for deadline day considering United were about to pay 30 mil for Herrera. However arsenal need depth and a true dm. I don't know if a center mid of him wilshire and arteta could stop elite teams (i love arteta as a regista but he needs a defensive presence with him). Overall good signing but thru needed more

Ozil is a brilliant player and Arsenal will be happy they've actually signed someone. In his time at Real he had the most assist in La Liga during that period joint with Messi so you know he'll be a tricky customer. The only player Arsenal really need to sign is a holding midfielder in the mould of Vieira, Gilberto Silva or Petit to break up the play and help protect what at times is a fairly limp back 4

Amazinggggggggg signing

Ozil is a quality player but it's another example of an over inflated fee. Be interesting to see how Wenger fits him into the side. Wilshere, Cazorla, Walcott & Ozil would be a bit unbalanced unless Wilshere drops deeper. Add Podolski when he's fit & someone will have to be dropped.

@mrsentah I think people forget that even if a bid is accepted it is down to the player whether he wants to sign for the club or not. It probably will happen but it would be hilarious if it didn't.

Would be an incredible signing for them.

still think they need strengthening in other areas but he'll be a massive player for them. would certainly appease the fans too.

@Doozers20 Your right. I get the feeling they've made this big signing just to appease the fans.

Yes he's worth the money, however to me he's not enough, they need more, and that position is not a massive need for Arsenal. Having to use Sagna in centre back when Koscielny was suspended tells me they need a defender, all they have is Giroud and Podolski as a forward, maybe even a top defensive mid would be more important.

@MB_Ktubes Your wrong mate Madrid do want to sell him because they need to pay for the Bale deal.
