The new Ozil is in Sweden

Swedish wunderkind Peter Gwargis, is on the radar of Arsenal after impressing several scouts across Europe. The playmaker has been named as the next Mesut Ozil after his dazzling displays for Husqvarna FF a youth team in the country.

But the Gunners might find it difficult to pry him away from the club because his heart is apparently set on a move to Giovanni Van Bronckhorst's Feyenoord side. The 16-year-old has already visited their training facilities and it looks likely he will move there soon.

The player’s agent spoke to  about the interest generated in the youngster and his visit to the Dutch side. I'm in Holland right now on a visit to Feyenoord with Peter Gwargis.

"Peter has trained with both the U17 and U19. He is a left-footed, attacking player who many here believe will be a new Ozil. Both Arsenal and PSV have sent invitations but now Feyenoord feels most right.”

The Swedish youngster has apparently drawn comparisons t the current Arsenal No 10. and many in his home country feel he is on track be as good as the German wizard. Arsenal have been notified of this and are watching him keenly but any move for him could be scuppered because of Feyenoord.

Their rivals PSV Eindhoven are also interested in signing the teenager but if he does join a dutch side it most likely will be Feyenoord. If the youngster does go on to be as good as Ozil then he will command a huge fee in the future which is the reason Arsenal want to sign him so early in his development.

Ozil’s scoring record has improved this season

Last season despite being the assist machine Ozil was there was some criticism about his form in front of goal. But this season the German playmaker can’t stop scoring this season. 

It has to do mostly with Alexis Sanchez playing up top and allowing Ozil to make runs behind him. Speaking to Arsenal’s official website he spoke about his improved form”

“He sees in training that when I have a chance, the ball mostly goes in. When we train on finishing, he sees that I score lots of goals. He knows that I’m ice-cold in front of goal and he wants to see that in matches.I’m doing that now - I go forward and, while I haven’t changed my game, I’m focusing on scoring goals myself too.”

Ozil’s role might change next week considering Sanchez will most likely be out of the Gunner’s game against Manchester United
