Özil who provided three assists in Germany’s 7-0 victory over Gibraltar in the Euro 2016 qualification game feels the Bundesliga duo have what it takes to be a success in England’s top division.
“Mats and Benedikt have the qualities to make a mark at a big club here – if they want to, and that is obviously up to the individual to decide,” Özil told Bild am Sonntag.
Germany remain in second place in Group D following the win over Gibraltar. Poland are still group leaders on 14 points after six games.
Özil ended the season on a high but missed three months from October to the turn of the year due to a knee injury he sustained during a 2-0 defeat to Chelsea.
The Arsenal star ended up winning two FA Cup trophies and lifting the World Cup in Brazil within the space of a year.
