Mesut Ozil dreams of winning the Balon D’Or [divider]
Arsenal star Mesut Özil has revealed that he dreams of winning the Balon D’Or.
“When I was a kid I dreamed of winning the Balon D’Or. I still have that dream,” Özil told German newspaper Express.
The Balon D’Or is awarded by FIFA to the world player of the season.
Özil has been in impressive form since returning from a knee injury that ruled him out for three months.
The 26-year-old was voted Arsenal Vitality Player of the Month in February and has the third best minutes per assist rate in Premier League history according to Opta.
The Gunners have won seven out of their eight Premier League games in which Özil has started in 2015.
Özil won the La Liga title with Real Madrid before his move to England and also won the World Cup with Germany in the summer.
The Arsenal star has scored three times and created four goals since returning to the first team in January.
