Arsene Wenger is confident that record-breaking signing Mesut Ozil can help make Jack Wilshere a better player, according to the Metro.
The Gunners' boss has highlighted that with Ozil's arrival, his prodigal talent can play from deeper, and this will improve his effectiveness and all-round game.
There has been some speculation about where Ozil will play following his £42million move from Real Madrid on deadline day.
Both he and Wilshere are seen as having exceptional creative talent, and are both used to adopting similar roles, but Wenger doesn't believe this will be a problem.
"In midfield, Jack Wilshere is more comfortable in deeper positions and Ozil more in a higher position, that is why I don’t think they conflict," said Wenger.
"I didn’t always think that, but looking at Jack over the years now, he likes to come deep to take the ball and make a difference, and then give and go again.
"Ozil, though, is more behind the striker, higher up on the field."
The French manager also expressed his optimism at the additional flair the arrival of the German sensation will herald.
"Ozil has the personality to express his game, which is for me the most important. He is a creative player, and that is what we want, to express his talent and develop it," the Arsenal boss added.
"If you look well at his record, his assists are fantastic, his goalscoring record there is room for improvement.
"In the next few years, you expect him to combine those two together."
