Ozil: I did all I could to bring Mustafi to Arsenal

Mesut Ozil admits badgering Shkodran Mustafi about moving to Arsenal.

Mustafi, 24, signed for the Gunners in a £35million deal from Valencia in the summer.

“I've known Shkodran from the German national team and we spoke a lot about this club before his transfer," Ozil said in Arsenal's match-day programme.

“He had a few questions for me, about the team, the manager and the city. We spoke about things and I was pleased that he eventually decided to move here."
