Arsenal's club-record signing Mesut Ozil is expected to be thrown into the Premier League this weekend against Sunderland.
The German international, who joined the Gunners from Real Madrid on deadline day for a reported £42.5m, will be presented to the media in a press conference today.
Widespread reports have claimed that manager Arsene Wenger will hand Ozil his full debut at the Stadium of Light on Saturday due to a thigh injury suffered by Tomas Rosicky while on international duty for the Czech Republic.
Reports in Denmark have claimed that Arsenal outcast Nicklas Bendtner could return to the squad this weekend due to injury problems within the team.
