Liverpool legend Kenny Dalgish has questioned Arsenal’s signing of Mesut Ozil in the just concluded transfer window. Wenger signed the former Real Madrid player in a 42.5 million deal on the very last day of the transfer window. Kenny Dalgish in his daily mirror write up has questioned why Wenger has to spend 42.5 million on another midfielder when according to him there are other areas the team need signings in.
King Kenny wrote in the Mirror: “A couple of things about it interest me, though.
“The first is that, with Ozil, Arsene Wenger has strengthened a position where Arsenal were already strong.
“He has not addressed other positions you might have expected to be a bigger priority.
“Centre-back would be one of those and even though striker Olivier Giroud has started the season impressively, it would be better if there was someone else up there to give him competition or fill in if he gets injured.”
Although I personally believe there are other areas the team need signings in but I do not agree we have enough in the midfield. Yes, we have the likes of Jack, Arteta, Cazorla and the likes but we still struggle to create clear cut goal scoring opportunities which make signing Ozil very sensible.
