Mesut Ozil confident of Arsenal success

Mesut Ozil has insisted he joined Arsenal to win trophies and secure the club's first silverware since 2005.

• Mangan: Arsenal unlucky to be one forward short
Podolski: Ozil perfect for Arsenal

The Germany international is convinced he has made a shrewd move by swapping Real Madrid -- where he won a La Liga title in 2011-12 and reached the semi-finals of the Champions League in each of his three years at the club -- for the challenge of regular Premier League football with Arsenal.

"In the last few years, Arsenal haven’t been so successful, but we want to become more successful and we want to win trophies," Ozil told Arsenal's official website.

"I think the fans are looking forward to that too. We have a very strong and a very young team that can improve a lot under the manager.

"I think we will win trophies because we have the potential to do this.

"I’m really looking forward to the challenge, life in London and meeting my team-mates, the manager and the fans, as well as the Premier League. I’m really excited. It’s a perfect decision for me and I’m looking forward to it all.

"I’m happy to be playing in the Premier League because everyone knows it’s the strongest league in the world. There are simply a lot of top teams. I want to prove myself there. It’s a new challenge for me, a new task. I’m looking forward to that. I want to improve further under the boss and in the team."

 

Despite his £42.5 million price tag, Ozil suggested he is still a maturing player at the age of 24 and has backed Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger to move his game onto another level.

"I chose Arsenal because they are one of the top clubs in England," he added. "The coach is a world-class manager. He has demonstrated that for years. A lot of players have developed under his guidance in the past and that’s why I decided to join Arsenal.

"I want to improve myself further and I’m looking forward to the style of play. Arsenal are well known for the strength of their technical game and their desire to play attacking football. I think I will fit perfectly into that. That’s why I chose to sign for the club.

"Arsenal are one of the technically strongest teams in the world. The manager always wants to play attractive and attacking football. I think I fit into that because I enjoy playing quickly, that ’one-touch football’. I’m happy to be part of the club and I hope I can help the team."
