Arsenal Paid To Much For Ozil – Former Arsenal Player


Invincibles goalkeeper Jens Lehmann has admitted Arsenal paid too much for Mesut Özil but blamed it on the price Real Madrid paid for Gareth Bale.

The Gunners completely smashed their transfer record to sign the German and it looks to have been a good acquisition so far with four assists in three games. His arrival has lifted the entire club but Jens still feels the club paid over the odds.

“In all honesty, Arsenal paid too much for Mesut Özil, but that’s because Gareth Bale went to Real Madrid for so much more money. Nobody is worth that much.”

However, ‘Crazy’ Jens believes the Gunners did the better business out of the two deals.

“The Özil deal was much better. I don’t see a €50 million difference between the two players. That’s how that market works when a club like Real Madrid loses the plot.”

“Arsenal are profiting from Özil’s level of game and performance and his success is not a surprise to me. Wenger did not fail and, given time, he demonstrated a great success in the market.”

Only time will tell how much of an impact Özil will have over the season but the early signs looks promising for the Gunners.
