Ian Wright believes Mesut Ozil would thrive in the Manchester United team.

The Germany international has entered the final six months of his current Arsenal contract to prompt speculation about his long-term future at the north London side.

The Gunners are struggling to convince Ozil to pen a new long-term contract to throw up the possibility of the attacking midfielder leaving for nothing at the end of the 2017-18 term.

Manchester United have been linked with a potential move to sign the World Cup winner to add more creativity to Jose Mourinho’s midfield following some one-dimensional displays.

Ozil worked under the Portuguese coach at Real Madrid before he completed a club-record £42.5m deal to Arsenal in the 2013 summer transfer window.

The German midfielder could leave Arsenal in a cut-price deal in January, otherwise the World Cup winner will be free to leave for nothing next summer.

Former Arsenal striker Wright reluctantly conceded that Ozil would be a big hit at Manchester United should the playmaker secure a reunion with Mourinho.

“If you’re playing well, Ozil will sprinkle stardust all over the place,” Wright told The Debate on Sky Sports on Wednesday night.

“He would be unbelievable [at United]. With the right team and the right move in front of him, he’d be amazing.”

Arsenal finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a Champions League spot for the first time under Arsene Wenger.
