Arsenal's latest signing has insisted that the Gunners will put a stop to their trophy-less run after eight years.
Mesut Ozil is confident that he will fit into Arsene Wenger's side, and will help bring silverware to the Emirates.
The 24-year-old German international joined the Gunners on this summer's transfer deadline day. He joined for a fee of £42.5million, becoming the most expensive German footballer, and becoming Arsenal's record transfer. Ozil chose to leave Madrid when he realised he no longer had a guaranteed first team place.
It is reported that Spurs Chairman, Daniel Levy, phoned Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez, attempting to block Ozil's transfer to Arsenal. Levy said he felt "betrayed" that Madrid would sell Ozil to their North-London rivals after Spurs had inquired themselves as part of the Bale transfer.
He also reminded Madrid of their "partnership" that had been created after the sale of Modric and Bale to the Spanish giants.
Ozil however is happy to have made his move to the red half of north London.
"I want to improve myself further and I am looking forward to the style of play. Arsenal are well known for the strength of their technical game and their desire to play attacking football. I think I will fit perfectly into that. That is why I chose to sign for the club," Özil said in an interview with Arsenal Player.
Arsenal fans have previously complained at the lack of marquee signings, but that no longer seems to be a problem.
What's certain, is that Ozil is definitely a marquee signing and is seen by many as one of the best, if not the best, attacking midfielder in the world.
