Mesut Ozil has completed his first television interview as an Arsenal footballer.
Arsenal’s newest signing was interviewed by Sky Sports News in Germany, where Mesut Ozil described how he’s looking forward to playing in the best soccer league in the world. Ozil even found a way to slot in a “Let’s go Gunners” soundbite.
Ozil agreed to join Arsenal on the final day of the transfer window. While the amount of the fee and contract were not disclosed, it’s believed to be around £42.5million in a five-year deal. The transfer makes him the most expensive German football player of all time and broke Arsenal’s previous transfer record of £15million, which was for Andrey Arshavin in 2008.
Ozil will wear the number 11 shirt at Arsenal. His first match for Arsenal could be on September 14 when the Gunners play Sunderland.
