Niall Quinn says Mesut Ozil is playing at a different level for Arsenal this season
Mesut Ozil is playing at a different level for Arsenal this season, according to Niall Quinn.
The Germany international produced another impressive performance in Arsenal’s 3-0 victory over Olympiacos in Greece in their vital Champions League group-stage game.
Ozil has been in scintillating form for the north London side over the past couple of months, racking up a staggering 12 assists in 14 Premier League games.
The World Cup winner has particularly impressed in Arsenal’s biggest games of the season, inspiring the Gunners to victories over Manchester United and Bayern Munich.
Former Arsenal striker Quinn believes the north London side’s club-record signing is enjoying his football again.
“He has taken his time warming up as an Arsenal player,” Quinn told Sky Sports.
“He is playing with ease. He looks like he is enjoying his football.
“He is playing at a different level that he is playing at.”
Ozil, 27, has scored two goals and has made 12 assists in 14 Premier League appearances for the north London outfit so far this term.
The Gunners midfielder has won back-to-back FA Cups since the German playmaker moved to Arsenal in his record deal from Los Blancos.
