Having missed out on Mesut Ozil it appears that we have decided to go for the next best thing in Ilkay Gundogan or the new Mesut Ozil.

It’s not lost on me at all that despite being massively talented Mesut Ozil hasn’t actually achieved anything in his career so for Gundogan to be labelled the ‘new Mesut Ozil’ is pretty ridiculous but hey I don’t make the rules, I guess the fact he is a German of Turkish origin is enough!

Currently playing for Nurenberg, Gundogan is considered one of the Bundesliga’s brightest talents and hasn’t done his reputation any damage with his recent form including 2 goals against Werder Bremen as Nurenberg picked up an away win this weekend. The playmaker is central to Nurenberg’s attack and is described as having a good shot as well as being good at set pieces.
