Arsenal can win Premier League title claims Mesut Ozil
Mesut Ozil was a surprise signing for the Gunners on transfer deadline day and the German can’t wait to get started after arriving at the Emirates for £42.5million.

Ozil had appeared to be part of the furniture at Real Madrid last season and recently claimed he was remaining at the Bernabeu, although the arrival of Gareth Bale saw the Spanish club keen to recoup some of that huge outlay and Arsenal found themselves with a world-class player in the squad.
The German is likely to make his debut at Sunderland on Saturday and claims that his new club can win the Premier League title this term and that his professionalism shouldn’t be open to question.
“I don’t want to say anything bad about Madrid because I had three wonderful years there. I have great friends there. We achieved a lot with the club and (won) trophies. That is why I don’t want to talk a lot about it,” Ozil told a press conference.
“People who know me know how professional I am and I think [in] the past years, you can see how many games I played – 159 games.
“If you are not professional in your life, then I don’t think you can play that many games.
“People know how professional I am and this is what counts. All the rumours, I don’t care about them.
“I have a new task here. I am just looking ahead.
“I am in London now. We have big goals here and we will work very hard to reach these goals.”
Ozil added: “You can see by the reaction of the fans and the players that they didn’t understand the move, but this is football. You always have to look ahead and I have made the next step.
“My time there (Real Madrid) was great, but that topic is over.
“I will have wonderful years here (at Arsenal), hopefully I will win many trophies and stay healthy and this what I look forward to.”
