New signing Granit Xhaka thinks Mesut Ozil has the ability to guide Arsenal towards the top of the Premier League table.
The Swiss international joined the Gunners from Borussia Moenchengladbach in a deal worth £34million earlier this summer and is preparing to hit the ground running when he makes his debut against Liverpool this weekend.
Ozil only returned to training this week after being allowed extended leave after his exploits at Euro 2016 and Xhaka is impressed by what he has seen so far from the German international.
“I don’t know a better No.10 than Mesut,” declared Xhaka, when asked about Ozil by Arsenal’s official website.

“He’s very important for this team, as he’s shown in the past. He has his qualities, he’s something special and I hope he shows that next season.
“He’s played for Germany, for Real Madrid and is a terrific player. He’s got an excellent final pass and a superb first touch.
“I’m definitely looking forward to playing alongside him.”
