Mesut Ozil has enjoyed a solid start to his career in England. However, next season he could be spectacular.
With his period of adaptation now complete, Arsene Wenger insists he could be a contender for Player of the Year next season.
Wenger told The Guardian:
Mesut had a period where he was tired because he was not used to playing through the [English] season. Before he got injured, he had a period where he was a bit jaded. But he is a fantastic player and I would put him on the list to be player of the season next season.
The first season is the season in which you adapt and then you know what will happen and you go into it. I believe he will know better his partners, he will know better the league and the potential is absolutely fantastic. The improvement will be in goals, assists and his presence in the game.
The prospect of Ozil's improvement is mouthwatering for all Arsenal fans.
