Mesut Ozil has been consistently stunning since his breathtaking transfer from Real Madrid.
His first goal for Arsenal came during their midweek domination of Napoli. The sumptuous quality with which Ozil improbably stroked the ball past Pepe Reina was perhaps his most striking display of skill since arriving at the Emirates Stadium.
It also made for a heck of a great GIF. After all, how can a footballer—or any celebrity for that matter—be regarded as a credible icon if he cannot produce little bits of entertainment that are endlessly watchable?
Ozil has mastered the art. Below are the best GIFs that he has produced since signing for Arsenal.
