Mathieu Flamini says Mesut Ozil is “easily” one of the best footballers he has ever played with.

The World Cup winner has been in sensational form this season, claiming three goals and 16 assists in 19 Premier League appearances.

Flamini has played with a number of world-class players, including Ballon d’Or winners Andriy Shevchenko, Ronaldinho and Kaka, and the Frenchman believes Ozil’s form this season shows he is of comparable quality.

"His vision is something that you don’t find very often, so he’s easily one of the best players I’ve ever played with"

“I’m very pleased for him,” Flamini told Arsenal Player. “We all knew he was a top player but I’m glad he’s proving it every game. It’s very important to have him on our side because, as you can all see, he can make the difference at any time.

“He has been giving so many assists and has been making so much difference in the past few games, so it’s a pleasure to play next to him and it’s also a pleasure to watch him on the pitch.

“His vision is something that you don’t find very often, so he’s easily one of the best players I’ve ever played with.

“We are close friends and we have a good time on and off the pitch. That’s very important because, if you want to be able to perform, you have to feel happy in your head and feel confident off the pitch.

"I believe he is [happy] here and we have such a great atmosphere here that it makes it very easy for him to feel comfortable.”
