Mesut Ozil 'can win title for Arsenal'
Arsene Wenger: Wilshere can emulate Ramsey attitude
Mesut Ozil's "genius" can propel Arsenal to the Premier League title, his former Real Madrid team-mate Sami Khedira has said.
Ozil, who joined the Gunners for a club record £42.5 million shortly before the end of the transfer window, has proved an instant success, notching four assists in his first six games to help the Gunners top the Premier League table.
Khedira told the Daily Mirror his fellow Germany international had added the extra quality Arsene Wenger’s side needed to challenge for the biggest trophies.
“They already had a strong team in any case, but Mesut makes them into the best team in England,” he said. “I am sure he can be the player that makes things happen for them and win them the championship. Mesut is a genius on the field -- there is no other way to describe him.”
Meanwhile Ozil’s former side have been stumbling in his absence, and Khedira admitted his exit had been blow. “There was some disappointment among Madrid’s players because he is the best in the world in his position, but I understand his decision as a player and a friend,” he said.
