Cape Town - Sport24 readers believe Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger's signing of German midfielder Mesut Ozil was the best bit of business in the English Premiership transfer window.

GALLERY: Top 10 most expensive transfers

On deadline day, Wenger, bought Ozil from Real Madrid for a club record £42.4m, smashing the previous club record and personal terms of around £150 000-a-week have also been agreed.

He was the most expensive player signed by any English club within the transfer window, eclipsing Manchester City's £40m spent on Brazilian midfielder Fernandinho.

In Sport24's online poll, nearly half of readers picked Ozil as the shrewdest buy out of a list of the top five most expensive signings - Ozil's move to Arsenal, Fernandinho's move to Manchester City, Marouane Fellaini's move to Manchester United, Willian's move to Chelsea and Roberto Soldado's move to Tottenham Hotspur.

Sport24 asked:

"Who was the best signing in the transfer window by an English Premiership team?"


These were the results:

49% - Arsenal signing Ozil for £42.4m
24% - Other
9% - Manchester City signing Fernandinho for £40m
9% - Manchester United signing Fellaini for £27.5m
5% - Chelsea signing Willian for £33m
4% - Spurs signing Soldado for £26m
