“Iv known Ramsey since he was five years of age, I would play him central before I would play Ozil,” Bellamy said live on Sky Sports Monday Night Football.
“I know this may be a difficult statement to make at the current time.
“watching his game and watching him develop, centrally he is one of the top players in world football.”
The World Cup has scored four goals for the Gunners and has provided 12 assists in 20 games this season.
Ozil also played a staring role in Arsenal’s victory over Sunderland in the Premier League last weekend.
The 27-year-old received a rating of 8.5 from WhoScored making him the man of the match, Ozil made five key passes and took 122 touches on the ball during the game.
Arsenal have 30 points after 15 games and take on Olympiakos in the UEFA Champions League next week. Arsene Wenger’s side need to beat the Greek Super League side by at least two goals in order to qualify.
