Cesc Fabregas has provided a ringing endorsement of Mesut Ozil’s move to his former club Arsenal.
Speaking to Al Primer Toque, Fabregas is certain that Ozil will succeed at the Emirates, sounding just like a number of Arsenal fans at the current time.
Fabregas: “He is going to enjoy the Premier League an awful lot. It is a league with much more space and Ozil is a player that, given time and space, he will kill you.”
The Barcelona schemer added: “As we have already seen from his time at Real Madrid, his final ball is brilliant and I believe that he will really enjoy himself in England.”
Also on Monday, defender Per Mertesacker has revealed that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger spoke to him about a move for Ozil before the deal was completed last Monday.
Mertesacker: “Wenger asked me what I thought of Ozil, and the answer was obvious. I knew that he had been watching him for a long time, and he wanted to sign him even when he was at Werder Bremen.”
The big German defender continued: “I am glad that we have still managed a relatively big deal before the deadline, which will certainly bring us forward in the Premier League and in the Champions League. I know him from Bremen, so I know he will improve us.”
