Arsenal faced Newcastle United at the Emirates this weekend, which produced one of the best goals the fans will get to witness all season. And following the goal, United legend Phil Neville was seen urging Jose Mourinho to sign Mesut Özil.
During the first half of the match, a poor clearance from the visitors saw the ball fall kindly to the German, who smashed it into the net on the volley, leaving the supporters in awe.
The goal, which is quite reminiscent of Zinedine Zidane’s classic Champions League final volley for Real Madrid, has managed to prompt the former Red Devil to publicly ask the United boss to sign Özil.
The Englishman expressed his desire to see the ex-Galactico at Old Trafford through this following tweet, which then sparked some similar posts from the fans as well:
What a goal from @MesutOzil1088 sign him Jose

Arsenal fans shouting Ozil as the best no. 10 in league because he hasn't left yet and Utd fans doing the same because they think he's signing. Honestly 😂😂

Though the midfield maestro’s goal of the season contender managed to give his side all three points this time around, the possibility of his departure has only made the Gooners more anxious.
The Mancunian giants have been linked with the German international heavily this season, with reports hinting at Mourinho’s aim for a reunion with his colleague from his days at the Bernabeu.
The 29-year-old’s current contract is set to expire by the end of the season, which means the Portuguese could score his reunion for a potential free transfer.
However, Arsenal are keen on keeping the former Schalke man at the Emirates, and Arséne Wenger insists he is confident that the club talisman will stay.
