Asked if Ozil looked like a player seeking the easy life away from Madrid, Wenger said : “No, I have not seen that at all,”.

“He is 24, he has over 50 caps for Germany and when you play for Germany, you are under a lot of pressure. He won the championship with Real Madrid, and that is a club where there is a lot of pressure, but I could not detect that.

“Ozil has integrated well, and been well accepted.

“I think he is not at the top physically yet, overall we are very pleased to have him with us, but he will demand a bit of time to adjust to the vigorous body challenges he will face here in the Premier league.

“Once he has done that, he will be even stronger.”
