Jack Wilshere was amazed to hear Mesut Ozil deal

Jack Wilshere talks about how amazed he was, when he heard about Arsenal’s interested in Germany international Mesut Ozil back in 2012 and insists the latter understands football well.

Mesut Ozil came from Spain outfit Real Madrid with a reported club record fee of £42.5m and he has been very instrumental in Arsenal’s back to back FA Cup success.

Jack Wilshere, whose career has seen a twist after picking a fracture in his left leg on 15th September 2015 and is yet to make a competitive appearance appearance this season.

Chelsea in the Community Shield game in August says he was shocked to see his side vying for the signature of the German.

“I remember watching the transfer deadline day on TV and seeing that Arsenal were interested in Mesut Ozil and you almost did not believe it.”

“I watched him for a few years, he was another player who started off young and went to a big club like Real Madrid. I remember watching him a few times and thinking that this player really understands football.”

“You can tell he really understands football and to play alongside him is something special,” he told the Club’s official website.

Mesut Ozil has masterminded 13 assist and four goals in 22 appearance in all competitions for Arsenal and it is widely understood that the World Cup winner is at his best form ever for the Gunners this season.
