Worth it?

It’s a tricky one.

There’s no doubting that Ozil has failed to kick on in recent years and this is probably the kind of card many would’ve expected to be his base card on FIFA 20 four or five years ago.

4* 5*! The weak foot upgrade just made Ozil A LOT better

But however nice this card may be – particularly with that 93-rated passing and 92-rated dribbling and that HUGE boost to his weak foot – over 200k for an untradeable card seems quite steep at this stage of FIFA, especially with Team of the Season just around the corner.

If you’re an Arsenal fan or just fancy a FUT Birthday card to add to your side then there’s no harm in picking up this Ozil, but we’d hold off and hope that the price drops a little when the hype dies down.
