Arsenal morning news: Ozil stars in Germany win, Barca star could join on a free

A round up of the key news stories about Arsenal this morning.

Mesut Ozil produced a stunning performance as Germany comfortably defeated Austria 3-0 in their World Cup qualifier last night.

Arsenal’s new signing was playing in a midfield with Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus and Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller.

Ozil produced a fantastic 99% successful passing rate throughout the match, further justifying the £42.5 million price the Gunners paid to Real Madrid on the last day of the transfer window.

Arsenal could make a move for Barcelona youngster Martin Montoya according to online sources.

The Barca star is currently being used as back up to Dani Alves at the Nou Camp and could be available on a free transfer next summer when his current contract expires.

The Mirror has reported the prospect of regular first team football at the Emirates Stadium as well as a bigger wage packet, two temptations he could find hard to resist.

Arsenal youngsters Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Kieran Gibbs have urged the Gunners to mount a serious push for the Premier League title.

Arsenal have endured a decent start to the season, reacting well following the home defeat to Aston Villa on the first day of the season, with an injection of anticipation following the signing of Mesut Ozil.

“Without doubt we think we can win the title. Just like we believe we can win every competition we’re in. If you don’t believe that, if you aren’t striving, then you don’t deserve to be at Arsenal,” Oxlade-Chamberlain told the Telegraph.
