Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger had a lot to prove this summer with fans wanting established talent rather than the usual riff raff.
Wenger rose to the pressure and made his move for Mesut Ozil, a man whose talent is unquestionable, Ozil has scored only four goals this season.
The attacker is a proven goalscorer, and with his ability in attack, it would bring valuable experience to Wenger's charges, however, the star has been inconsistent to say the least.
So perhaps there would have been better playmakers to sign, such as the Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen, who joined Spurs this summer.
Eriksen signed for Tottenham from Ajax, although has only just started to show his best form for Tim Sherwood's men and perhaps doesn't get the recognition he deserves at White Hart Lane, despite being a proven class act.
He does play now under Sherwood, but has struggled for game time all season, when realistically he is only against average team-mates. Eriksen's form has been suffering, with only five goals and five assists all season compared to Ozil's four goals and nine assists.
Perhaps Ozil is better, but he has been struggling for form and has been heavily criticised by fans around the country. Maybe it's time for a new partner?
Eriksen has scored 40 goals in 191 appearances for the club, however, goalscoring perhaps isn't his main approach, setting up goals for his fellows is the aim.
With Tottenham floundering even with Eriksen and set to miss out on European football next season, it may be time for the Dane to jump ship this summer and perhaps go to a new club where his needs are meet.
Arsenal have been struggling, with no one moving beyond Olivier Giroud and I think that Eriksen would solve this, along with Ozil. But then again, even he may be on his way out.
So why don't Arsenal move for the mighty Dane?
