The buzz around the Emirates Stadium is surrounding the German wonder kid Mesut Ozil! Mesut has become a super star at Emirates already. When Arsene (who was much criticized for his miserly spending in the transfer window prior to this move) spent a club record £42.5 million to bring in Mesut there were many speculations. Some people still wanted Arsene to slash out cash to purchase Wayne Rooney; others thought Cristiano Ronaldo would have been a better investment.

But Mesut has proved all doubts raised against him were pointless. He has adapted to the English playing style very early and is ruling the roost now. He has teamed up effectively with Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey to give a cutting edge to the Arsenal midfield. In his short tenure at the Emirates Stadium, Mesut Ozil has already scored 3 and assisted in 5 goals. This is a staggering statistic for any player vying his first year in the BPL, and the season has a long way to go yet!

The stellar form showcased by Mesut Ozil has even forced, otherwise tight lipped, Arsene Wenger to praise his star signing. Speaking at a French television show, Telefoot, Arsene said that he found similarities between Zinedane Zidane and Mesut Ozil in the way they dribbled the ball and made right decisions every time (in terms of passing). He even said “Ozil has a special quality”.

It seems the story of Arsenal and Mesut Ozil augers well.
