The 24-year-old penned a five-year deal with the Gunners on transfer deadline day in September after Arsenal wrapped up a club-record £42.5m deal to lure the midfielder to The Emirates.
Ozil has already scored one goal and made four assists in five appearances for his new club, and the former Werder Bremen playmaker expressed his delight at the north London side.
“I had three fantastic years at Madrid,” Ozil said. “And I would like to leave it at that. I am now happy to play for Arsenal.”
Germany can book their place in next summer’s World Cup with victory over the Republic of Ireland on Friday night, and Ozil is relishing his 50th game for the national side.
“We know the Irish team are born fighters, who give everything to final minute. We just have to play our game. I’m quite convinced we will clinch three points if we play to our full potential, but the Irish team put their foot on accelerator for 90 minutes. They will want to beat Germany.
“Obviously I’m very pleased to be playing my 50th game. It’s very good for me that I have been called up so many times. I would also like to thank the national manager for giving me the trust and confidence.
“I’m quite content with performances I’ve put in so far. The great thing is the team support me, also the coaching staff. I’m just happy to play for Germany. The fact I’ve played so many reflects I’m a professional player giving my all for Germany. If I hadn’t I wouldn’t be called up so often.”
