Wenger Admits Ozil Similar To Arsenal Legend Dennis Bergkamp

Mesut Ozil 18

It has been reported that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is happy to liken Mesut Ozil to Gunners legend Dennis Bergkamp.

The German international playmaker joined the Premier League club on deadline day from Spanish giants Real Madrid.

“Yes, he is a similar type,” Wenger said.

“Dennis was maybe more prolific. Dennis was first a striker but he created as well. But Dennis’s evolution through his career was an adaptation to his physical qualities. When he couldn’t score any more he became a great provider.

“I think Ozil, at the start, has more a midfielder’s mentality and Dennis, at the start, had more a striker’s mentality. But he [Ozil] can score, yes.”
