Arsenal's record signing Mesut Ozil has thanked fans for their support since he arrived at the club 200 days ago - and says he wants to win at least one trophy in his first season.

The German arrived in north London from Real Madrid last summer in a deal worth £42.4 million.

He took to life in the England immediately and so far this season has eight assists and four goals in the Premier League.

Despite coming in for some criticism recently Ozil has bounced back, and now want to help his side push on and claim their first trophy in nine years.

He wrote on Facebook: "I've been a Gunner for 200 days now. from the first hour I felt well in my Arsenal family. I want to finish my first season with at least one title. I'm looking forward to returning to the pitch."

Arsenal's best chance of a trophy this season appears to be in the FA Cup, where they face Wigan in the semi-finals and will go up against either Hull or Sheffield United should they make it through.

The Gunners also remain in the Premier League title mix - they're four points adrift of leaders Chelsea with a game in hand having beaten rivals Tottenham 1-0 on Sunday.

Their next outing could prove to be crucial in the title race - Arsene Wenger's side take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
