The Gunners midfielder has been in excellent form in recent weeks despite continued uncertainty surrounding his long-term future at the north London club.
Ozil scored a first-half winner with a scintillating volley to secure Arsenal’s eighth Premier League win at the Emirates Stadium in the 2017-18 season.
The German playmaker has now scored three goals and has also made five assists in 15 appearances in the Premier League this season.
Ozil has netted three goals and has made five assists in his last 10 appearances to put himself in the shop window ahead of the January transfer window.
Speaking to BBC Sport about Ozil’s stylish winner, Wenger said:
“Ozil’s goal was a gem. Good that he scores important goals. That was a great goal.”
Ozil has little over six months remaining on his current Arsenal contract after the attacking midfielder failed to agree a new deal with the Gunners.
Arsenal risk losing Ozil for nothing next summer if the playmaker doesn’t sign a new contract, which could force the Gunners to sell the midfielder in a cut-price deal in January.
Ozil’s former Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho is rumoured to be keen to bring the World Cup winner to Manchester United.
