Mertesacker is tipping Mesut Ozil to have a great 2015/16.

Germany international Per Mertesacker is convinced his teammate Mesut Ozil can have a successful 2015/16 season for the Gunners.

Arsenal's attacking midfield star Ozil ended last term on a high and Mertesacker believes the former Real Madrid man has a “big season” ahead of him.

“He is one of our key players,” Arsenal’s vice-captain told Arsenal Player.

“Him in good fitness, him at his best - there’s a lot more to come from him and the second part of last season when he came back from injury, you could see how important he is for us as a team with his key passes, being in between the lines and always carrying a threat to the opponent.

“We need to find him and make him better, then he can show his real potential.
