Manchester United transfer dream held by 'Next Ozil'

Published Add your comment

It's easy to right off a 'Next [insert star]' label because of their commonality but for Maximilian Arnold, the similarities between himself and Mesut Ozil reach above the normal levels.

German magazine Kicker has run a feature in this week's addition and, as reported by Sports Witness, have outlined a number of similarities between Ozil and Arnold.

Not only do they share a nationality but they have also starred in the attacking midfield role and flourished alongside Wolfsburg star Diego - they're even the same height.

But Arnold reportedly told Kicker that he doesn't see himself following in the footsteps of Ozil by signing for Real Madrid or Arsenal. Instead he dreams of a move to Manchester United.

He also doesn't think he'll be signing for anyone for £42.5m anytime soon, admitting he was surprised to hear that a friend had to fork out €7m to sign him on the popular Football Manager game.

But the creative midfield talents of Arnold could be a great boost for David Moyes at Old Trafford, who has struggled to bring in an Ozil-style star since taking the reigns in the summer.

Manchester United are currently languishing in ninth place in the Premier League having lost games to West Brom, Newcastle and Everton to name but a few.

The 19-year-old has played nine games for Wolsfburg this season, scoring five goals and establishing his place in the starting XI.
