Mesut Ozil welcomes Arsenal's newest signing Ospina

Arsenal's record signing has welcomed their newest addition.

Mesut Ozil may be on his holidays, but the World Cup winner is still keeping a close eye on activity at Arsenal.

The £42 million star took to Twitter on Sunday night to offer his congratulations to the club's new signing David Ospina.

Ospina is expected to feature in this coming weekend's Emirates Cup, and begin staking his early claim to replace Wojciech Szczesny.

Meanwhile Ozil is not due back at Arsenal for another fortnight, and will certainly miss the Community Shield.

His message and refusal to switch off during his holiday indicates he is raring to get back and misses his new club already.

Arsene Wenger has already spoken of his excitement of the lift Ozil, Podolski and Mertesacker will bring when they return to the club.

Combined with the new signings of Sanchez, Debuchy and Ospina all yet to officially join up, the club's squad will take on a very different shape to the one which travelled in New York.
