Arsene Wenger has been highly criticized by almost every football fan on the planet this summer for his lack of spending, literally. The guy has spent £0 in the transfer window and with less than 24 hours to go he is set to splash some heavy dough. The Gunners are on the verge of landing Real Madrid playmaker Mesut Ozil for a reported €45million with another €5million in add-ons.
This move will no doubt restore the faith Arsenal fans had lost in Wenger over the past few months, and to do it after victory against city rivals Tottenham makes it that much sweeter. The German superstar has been unhappy at his situation at Madrid since Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival with the Italian boss opting to play Isco in his role. Ancelotti decided on moving Ozil out to the right, which hasn’t turned out quite well. Plus, that’s the position Gareth Bale will now occupy. Looks like Di Maria will be seeing a lot of Casillas this season.
There are another one or two other names that could be joining Ozil at the Emirates in a few hours time, but it’s still unconfirmed on who they may be. Surly though with all the frustration surrounding the club in recent months, September 2nd should turn out to be a marvelous day for Gooners all across the globe. Stay tuned.
