Transfer season is upon us, and and there are some huge deals being touted all around football. It is clear that Arsenal are keen to strengthen their squad ahead of next season, so that they can truly challenge for honours, rather than fall away in the second half of the year.
According to The Express, Mesut Ozil was pressed about whom his dream signing at Arsenal would be, and he was in little doubt when he declared the name of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Considering that Ozil has played with and against some of the very best footballers in the world, this is high praise indeed.
Ronaldo would certainly be an amazing signing for the Gunners, but unfortunately for Arsenal fans we’re going to give this the lowest possible score on the Pundit Arena Rumour Ranking.
Rumour ranking 5 – NO CHANCE
Arsenal must look for more realistic targets if they are to sign a real quality star. The Emirates faithful know that this past season was their best chance in years to claim the Premier League title, and although they finished second at the end of the year, in truth they were never in contention from March onwards.
While this may be ambitious from Mesut Ozil, the quality of footballer he has played with means that he could be a useful tool to attract new stars this summer.
