Mesut Ozil is Arsenal’s record signing of all time, and despite his new-found consistency towards the end of last season, he still hasn’t convinced all of the fans that he was worth his massive transfer fee, so I am sure there are some that think that we should allow the rumoured interest from Juventus to regain at least most of the cash we splashed out on the German international.
The fact is that Arsenal are blessed with an amazing array of attacking midfielders, and especially have Cazorla (Wenger’s Player-of-last-season) and Alexis Sanchez who are more than capable of making the No 10 role their own next season, while we are desperate for a more defensive-minded midfielder to share the burden with Francis Coquelin.
The Champions League runners-up Juventus have two such examples of the type of player we need, and with Arturo Vidal being 28 years old, Paul Pogba is certainly the most likely target for Arsenal to take us to the next level. The ex-Man United youngster has improved massively and it seems that Juventus are open to any massive offers for the Frenchman. If they are serious about trying to lure Ozil away from the Emirates, and the German expresses interest, then Arsene Wenger should respond with a counter-offer for Pogba and maybe work out a player-plus-cash deal with the Serie A Champions.
Would you agree to sacrifice Ozil if we could get Pogba this summer?
