Mesut Ozil insists that his decision to leave Real Madrid for Arsenal was a "perfect" step in his career.

New Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has insisted that he made the "perfect decision" to join the Gunners on deadline day.

The North London outfit broke their club-record transfer fee to secure the signature of the German international for £42.5m from Real Madrid.

"I'm really excited," Ozil told the club's official website. "It's a perfect decision for me and and I'm looking forward to it all.

"Arsenal are well known for the strength of their technical game and their desire to play attacking football. I think I will fit perfectly into that. That's why I chose to sign for the club."

Ozil's arrival has alleviated pressure from manager Arsene Wenger, who struggled to secure summer targets, including Gonzalo Higuain and Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.
