Santi Cazorla has lauded the acquisition of Mesut Ozil and believes the German midfielder will enjoy life at Arsenal.
Despite being sidelined (he’s hoping to return for the Napoli game) the diminutive Spaniard says he’s already learning from his new teammate and thinks it won’t take long for the ex-Real Madrid man to get to grips with Arsene Wenger’s football philosophy.
“He’s a different player who wins games. It’s nice 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 a leader] is what he need, perhaps this is what he had been lacking 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.”
The Spaniard also had warm words to say about young British duo Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere who’ve been holding the midfield fort during the Gunners injury ‘crisis’.
“Jack and Aaron are spectacular players,” he continued.
“They are young, have incredible futures and their start to the season, especially Aaron, has been very, very good. They’ve scored many goals and added much to the team. Hopefully they’ll maintain their level because the more they do so the better the competition for places and that’s good for the team. With Mikel [Arteta] recovering and Flamini signing the coach has lots of options.”
