Henrikh Mkhitaryan has claimed that Mesut Ozil is the best player in the world in his position (via Sky Sports).
As Arsenal prepare for a trip to Sweden to play Ostersunds FK in the Europa League, they will have to do it without a number of key players.
Alexandre Lacazette is injured and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is cup-tied but another of Arsenal’s new signings, Henrikh Mkhitaryan will surely start.
The former Borussia Dortmund man is known for his connection with Aubameyang but it seems that he is building a rapport with another Arsenal player, Mesut Ozil.
“Everyone knows that Mesut is one of the best players in the world,” he told Arsenal Player.

“It’s only happiness and joy to play next to him because he understands very well the football game, he has great vision, he has amazing technique and he’s the best in his position.”
It’s good to hear that Mkhitaryan thinks a lot of this current Arsenal team. Mesut Ozil is certainly up in terms of the world’s best and hopefully, he will show it for many years to come.
