Mesut Ozil

Football News

The World was in shock when Real Madrid sold Mesut Ozil to Arsenal.

Not just because Arsene Wenger finally loosened his pursestrings but because Ozil was arguably Madrid's second best player last season.

The King of Assists has created more goals than any other player in Europe over the last five seasons and has continued that form at Arsenal, assisting four as well as scoring three so far.

Without him, it is likely Ronaldo would have scored significantly fewer than he did and Ozil deserves credit for that.

It's harder to create a goal than score one and Ozil deserves a mention for this reason.
