Klopp thinks the German has taken the Gunners up a level.
Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has said that Arsenal are favourites for the Premier League title with Mesut Ozil in the side.
The Germany international became the Gunners’ club record signing when joining from Real Madrid on transfer deadline day for £42.4m.
Since then Ozil has impressed with some great performances – including netting twice in the north London side’s 4-1 win over Norwich City on Saturday.
Dortmund are now their next opponents, with a tie at the Emirates Stadium in the Champions League and Tuesday and Klopp is well aware of the dangers of Arsene Wenger’s team.
“Ozil has taken Arsenal up a level,” the 46-year-old told the Sun.
“He’s really one of the best players in the world and you’ve seen it now in the Premier League.
“If somebody had asked me a few weeks or months ago which player would be perfect for Arsenal, I would have said Mesut Ozil – because he is an Arsene Wenger player.
“This year you saw some teams in England change their manager and many players – Chelsea, Manchester United and City have new coaches.
“Arsenal have the better team and the same manager, so for me they are the favourites in the Premier League.
“And of course the favourites in the Premier League are a favourite in the Champions League, too.”
Victory over Norwich puts Wenger’s men two points clear at the top of the table with six wins from eight matches and no defeats in all competitions since the opening day of the season.
Wins over Marseille and Napoli in Europe also puts the club top of their Champions League group and Dortmund couldn’t be facing Arsenal at perhaps a worse time, due to their superb form of late.
