In an incredible turn of events, Arsenal pulled off what was easily the most shocking deal of the summer by signing Real Madrid's Mesut Ozil.

Up until September 2, Arsenal's summer transfer activity had been an absolute shambles.

In a matter of hours, Arsene Wenger turned his club's summer around by smashing Arsenal's transfer record with a £42.4 million deal for the 24-year-old German playmaker, according to David Ornstein of BBC Sport.
