Oezil is a perfect addition to the Gunners if they are serious about winning some hardware. Their starting XI just got better and it allows for some midfield rotation (especially with Flamini and when Arteta comes back) to handle CL in addition to the prem.
Very stoked at this signing as an Arsenal fan, if it can be finalized. Now just need RB and possibly a CF understudy.
Oh yeah he's fantastic and will improve them but it seems like the last thing they need. They'll be fun to watch him there, if nothing else though.
In other news, Swindon Town have signed one of my Football Manager 2007 superstars, Dany N'Guessan.
Their starting XI probably didnt need him as much (although he is a definite upgrade) but Wenger couldnt rotate the midfield without a huge drop-off in talent and experience, which means they couldnt compete at CL and Prem. Bringing in Flamini and Oezil changes that.
If they secure Ba or someone similar and a RB today they will be in great shape going forward.
