Recently Mesut Ozil shared a video of his four-legged friend Balboa playing football (view here).
Ozil’s dog did show an impressive array of skills and dispossessed the 27-year-old who cost Arsenal a club record transfer fee.
In-fact, Balboa’s football display was so impressive that some Arsenal fans have suggested that he could replace Olivier Giroud.
@Arsenal still quicker than Giroud

Ozil played the full 90 minutes during Germany’s 3-0 victory over Norway earlier yesterday evening. Joachim Low’s side got off to a winning start following goals from Thomas Muller and Kimmich.
The 27-year-old also started for Arsenal during their 3-1 victory over Watford FC last week. Ozil scored his first goal of the season against the Hornets but is yet to record an assist for Arsenal this season.
The Gunners take on Southampton this weekend in the Premier League. Arsene Wenger’s side have experinced a difficult start to the season following a defeat at the hands of Liverpool and a draw with last season’s champions Leicester City.
