Arsenal defender Kieran Gibbs believes the club-record signing of Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil can take the club to another level, reports BBC Sport. The 24 year old completed a transfer deadline switch from Real Madrid, in a £42.4m deal on the final day of the transfer window.

"It is a statement to what the club want to do and what the club want to achieve," Gibbs said on Arsenal Player.

"It's something everyone has been waiting for so now we have a big signing to help push us to the next level."
