Arsenal playmaker Santi Cazorla has praised the performances of the club’s record signing Mesut Ozil, who has highly impressed since moving to Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal star Santi Cazorla has hailed the performances of new signing Mesut Ozil, who joined the Gunners from Real Madrid in a club record deal on transfer deadline day.
The Germany international has been in top form since then, helping the north London side win all three matches he has played.
Ozil also leads the Premier League assist chart, despite only playing two of the five possible games, and his new Spanish colleague has been impressed.
“Mesut is a great player,” the currently injured Cazorla told Sphera Sports.
“He’s a unique player who wins games. It’s great to be with him every day because every time you learn something new.
“We are extremely fortunate to have him on our team. He’ll gradually adapt to what the team requires, where perhaps the change will be a little difficult, but since he arrived he’s looked very comfortable and he will continue to get better every day.
“I think he is the player Arsenal needs and I think [being one of the most important players in the team] is what he needed; perhaps this is what he had been missing at Real Madrid.
“The more important you feel, the better you play and here at Arsenal he is going to give everything.
“He will be the prototypical player in every way and that comes in handy. I’m sure he is going to really enjoy this club.”
