Mesut Özil Unveiled By Arsenal (PICTURES)

Mesut Özil trained with his Arsenal teammates for the first time since his move from Real Madrid.

The Gunners smashed their transfer record to sign Özil for £42.5 million on deadline day, and the 24-year-old German finally got to work on Thursday.

Özil posed for a picture with international colleagues Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski before training at Arsenal's Colney base.
