Edit: Sky Sports has announced Arsenal have signed Ozil
Just saw that myself I think he'll be a good signing. If they really DID pay 42 mil for him, then that's about 15 mil too much, in my opinion. 40+ million pound players don't sit on the bench, even at Real. Still, he'll be creative going forward, but as far as I can tell, Arsenal don't lack for creativity going forward, it's an out-and-out striker they need, and some defensive steel. Should have enough to finish around 4th or 5th, though, you would think.
I can't see Man United breaking into the top 4 this season with that squad, I just can't. So thin at the back, lacking any semblence of a midfield and having a disgruntled Rooney to pair with RVP up front. RVP will get goals, but will that be enough? I highly doubt it, not with the major improvements Liverpool and Spurs have made to their squads, and with Chelsea and City boasting major depth at almost every position.
