Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has revealed Arsenal’s cautiousness regarding finances over the years led to Mesut Özil’s arrival.
 
The club splashed out £42.4 million on the German on deadline day, a fee that could only have been afforded by the way the Gunners have dealt with their finances.
 
“The signing of Özil for a club record fee is a significant step for us. It was a direct result of all the hard work we have put in over recent years to build the commercial capability of the club to deliver the consistent revenues and financial strength required to compete for the world’s best players.”
 
The Gunners are close to paying off their stadium debt and with new sponsorship deals worth over £300 million, the club are starting to reap the rewards of over cautious thinking. The club recorded a profit of £6.7 million for the year ending 31 May and have cash reserves in the region of £120 million making them the most self-sustained financial club in Europe.

Arsenal chairman Chips Keswick has declared that the club is delighted with their deal for former Real Madrid midfielder Mesut Ozil.
 
Keswick talked up the signing of the German international – calling him “one of the world’s best players” – but said the club would continue to follow a prudent course.
 
“It is my job to ensure we steer further along the course we have set,” he said.
 
“We must continue to grow commercially to provide the club with the best opportunity to achieve success and we must do this in a way which remains true to our values and which ensures and protects the long-term sustainability of the club.”
 
He underlined, however, that significant sums remained available for Wenger to spend, if he deemed it necessary. “With the Özil transfer I believe we have made a significant statement and when Arsène decides the time is right to invest again Stan Kroenke, myself and the rest of the board will be delighted to support him.”

It is much better if we have a competitive team, and are able to take opportunities to sign suitable top class players when they arise, like Ozil.

Unfortunately due to players leaving in recent years (Cesc, Nasri, RVP, Flamini, Cole), we have desperately needed top class players to fill the void. And they haven't come through as needed (e.g. Mata, Alonso, Reina).

Wenger is great at identifying opportunities, but unwilling to try and win a bidding war. I think we are in good stead from now on to pick and choose and add top quality as the opportunities arise.

I think we may see a top class player every two summer transfer windows and if it is accompanied by not losing big names, things can look very good.

Pires might be asking him how he did an incredible assist the other day?

I'm not jumping on any bandwagon, or getting dramatic, but I'm genuinely worried about his form and his mood in general.

I think he looks depressed! He is so far from looking a 42 million pound player its unreal, a luxury no top team can afford, just not enough hard work when we don't have the ball. Mourinho wouldn't wear it with Mata, im not sure where we go with Ozil I hope he plays out of this spell

It is a worry indeed I also think this shows the gulf in player output of us compared to real Madrid.....oil has been playing some out of sorts formation for us and that is where the problem lays ....unfortunately to say he is a one position player...wenger needs to seriously address who he plays alongside ozil or intact changing the set up so that mesut plays only as he knows how...if not we are in danger of having signed a a bit of a dud for the squad.....still think a striker should have been a must...giroud is good dont get me wrong but ozil is used to a whole different caliber....

Just to add I know its his first spell in the prem...the up and coming world cup could be the kick in the balls he needs.... He has to start realizing its a 42mil not price in his head....an assumption we get a fucking good player in return..

And right now....needs to take a page from flamini's book and read the chapter on 'fighting as one'

its not as if he didn't deliver from the start, he looked like having settled into our system well initially. His form kind of dropped somewhere during the season and with every match the pressure is mounting on him. Still believe he needs one big game to get his form back..

How much better did we play without Ozil against Sunderland?

I think it may be a case of Cazorla and Ozil not playing well together. They are too similar, and both need runners and movement ahead of them to stretch the opposition defence, rather than the 2 of them coming to each other to get the ball.

that or may be ramsey's injury played a role as well, but its all speculation really, hope he can deliver soon to put an end to it..

Loosing Özil in this period of the season is nothing but a big loss! I know he has`nt had his best period, but he just got a few weeks off and looked fresh against Everton and ready for the last period of the season.
Hope he is back sooner that expected, we need our german!

I was afraid he would suffer some kind of burn out and pick up some kind of injury....and just that has happened....
He needs time to rest and a player no mater how good is useless burnt out...one good match against Everton shows how poor he he has been for the good few rest....no matter how big a player is....burnt out and not putting in a show is no use for anyone.

Arsenal are still unsure of the extent of midfielder Mesut Ozil's hamstring injury.

"He's out," manager Arsene Wenger told the club website. "I don't know for how long. There are scans going on."

Wenger added: "We have had to defer his comeback to full training so he is not available. He is having difficulties in the final stages of his rehab. It looks to be short term."
Kieran Gibbs will undergo a fitness test on Friday while fellow left-back Nacho Monreal also has a "good chance" of making a return.
Wenger revealed that Swedish midfielder Kim Kallstrom is in line for his debut, while striker Yaya Sanogo is available.
"Kallstrom joins the normal training group today and Sanogo too," he said.
"I will have to decide if Kallstrom is OK to be in the squad on Sunday. I will see how he looks. It is not impossible."

new news...

Arsenal will be without midfielder Mesut Ozil for at least four weeks after scans revealed he suffered a significant hamstring strain in Tuesday's Champions League exit at Bayern Munich.
The 25-year-old Germany international picked up the problem in the second minute of the 1-1 draw - which saw the Gunners lose 3-1 on aggregate - but he played on until being substituted at half-time.
Ozil will miss Arsenal's trip to Tottenham on Sunday, as well as games against Chelsea, Swansea, Manchester City and Everton.
He is also unlikely to feature in the FA Cup semi-final meeting with Wigan at Wembley on 12 April.
