The Mesut Özil transfer inches toward completion. According to Sky Sports, there could be an announcement from Arsenal in the next hour and a half or so.
It seems that the only steps today have been forward and not backward, which makes it seem more and more like this is a thing that's actually going to happen. David Ornstein and Jeremy Wilson both reported earlier that the deal was very nearly completed.
Ozil to Arsenal is close but doubt it will be announced within an hour. Contracts currently with lawyers #AFC— Jeremy Wilson (@JWTelegraph) September 2, 2013
This may take a bit to complete, but honestly, it looks like it would take a real disaster (like, Real Madrid doing things) to crash this deal. Stay calm for the moment, but we may be having a party in an hour or so.
