Mesut Ozil: What he can bring to England

Mesut Ozil, over the course of the summer, has been linked with a move away from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Both Manchester United and Arsenal have reportedly shown interest in the German superstar, and both teams are looking to do battle over the midfielder's signature. 

There's no question of the player's technical and mental abilities, having shown exactly what he is capable of over a successful period with Real Madrid.

Both teams would benefit from Ozil's ability, but which team would truly get the most out of his ability and which team best suit the German talisman? 

Arsenal

If Ozil were to become a Gunner before the transfer window slams shut, it would be the iconic transfer that all Arsenal fans across the globe have been waiting years for.

No disrespect to the likes of Olivier Giroud or fellow German international Lukas Podolski, but Mesut Ozil is truly one of the greatest players in the world and knows what is required to win trophies.

Being as versatile as he is, Ozil would be able to fit quite easily into Arsene Wenger's squad, being able to play on either wing with Cazorla in the middle or vice-versa. If he is to find his way to London, there's no doubt in my mind that Arsenal will once again be challenging for the Premier League. 

Manchester United

For Manchester United, the missing piece of the puzzle is clear. A midfielder. It is the only missing piece in another potential championship team and Mesut Ozil fits the bill of a Manchester United player very well.

Although he has not really been used in the centre of midfield at Real Madrid, he can very capably take up that role just next to Michael Carrick and focus on the attacking part of play, leaving Carrick to focus on the defensive side of things.

He will also be able to link up with Robin van Persie to devastating effect, slipping passes into the Dutchman knowing that he will be able to control it no matter what height or speed.

Ozil would suit both teams fantastically well and in my opinion he would fit in better at either Manchester United or Arsenal than he would under Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid, but the team I think he is best suited for is Manchester United.

I believe that because if he were to join Arsenal, he would make them into Premier League title contenders. However if he joined Manchester United, he would turn the Red Devils into potential European and world champions.
