Mesut Ozil rejected bigger money from PSG to sign with Arsene Wenger's Arsenal yesterday.

The Mirror says former Real Madrid midfielder Ozil has become the Gunners' biggest signing, completing a £42million move on a five-year deal worth around £140,000-a-week.

The midfielder had a bigger offer from big-spending French champions PSG but decided to join the Gunners after lengthy talks with Wenger over the telephone in the past few days.

Wenger spelled out Arsenal’s ambition to win silverware and for Ozil to be part of his football vision, as well as telling him that he would be his “dream” signing.

The Frenchman tried to sign Ozil before he joined Real Madrid three years ago, has remained a big fan and was keen to sign him once he was alerted about the 24-year-old's availability.
