Cazorla: Ozil quality helps

Santi Cazorla says the arrival of record signing Mesut Ozil has given Arsenal a 'big leap in quality' needed to challenge for the Premier League title.

Arsene Wenger has been full of praise for the Germany international since his arrival at the Emirates Stadium from Spanish giants Real Madrid in a £42.4milllion deal this summer.

Ozil, 24, was hugely influential during the Gunners' 3-1 victory over Stoke at the weekend, which helped the club climb to the top of the table.

And Spaniard Cazorla believes Ozil could be the missing link in helping the north Londoners lift their first major trophy since winning the FA Cup in 2005.

"Hopefully we win the title, but it is too early to talk about it," Cazorla told Sphera Sports. "The beginning is very good. After the first loss the team is performing at a good level.

"We are consistent, that is what we lacked last season. Furthermore, the incorporation of Mesut Ozil has given us a big leap in quality.

"Hopefully we can now become one of the great teams and that gives us the chance to fight for the title."

Carzola, 28, is currently nursing an ankle injury, although he hopes to be back fit for the club's Champions League clash with Napoli next week.

"I hope to be back shortly. Every day I'm feeling better and I'm working on all ways to reduce my downtime," he said.

"It all depends on how I train and strengthen my ankle. As the days go by I am doing more things and if all goes well I will try to return for the game against Napoli, but that's not certain."
