Mesut Ozil is Arsenal’s most expensive player in history and whilst many may argue he’s been ineffective, the German has improved the Gunners squad vastly and is still one of the biggest players in the world.
Winning two FA Cups with the Gunners, Ozil will be hoping for more honours during his time in England and he possesses the key to success, alongside his illustrious partner in crime Alexis Sanchez.
Having now reached a century of appearances in North London, Ozil has joined an illustrious list of Germans to excel in English football and joins the likes of Robert Huth, Dietmaar Hamann and Michael Ballack.

Now just 48 and 49 appearances behind former Arsenal stopper Jens Lehmann and current captain Per Mertesacker respectively, Gooners will hope that Ozil will continue to climb these standings and extend his contract in North London.
With just 18 months to go on his current deal, Ozil’s future with the Gunners remains up in the air but he seems content in his surroundings.
