Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has revealed he is learning from summer signing Mesut Ozil.

Cazorla, who is four years older than Ozil, is yet to play with the German international in a competitive game but has been extremely impressed with Arsenal's £42.4million record signing.

The Spanish international said on his new teammate: "Mesut is a top player. He is a different footballer who wins matches.

"It's great to be next to him every day because every time you learn something new, we are really lucky to have him in our team.

"He gives us exactly what we need and his incorporation in to the side has given the squad a big step up in terms of quality.

"I hope that his arrival gives us a chance of getting up there and fighting for the title."

Cazorla, who last appeared for the Gunners against Tottenham on September 1, is said to be making good progress in his recovery from an ankle injury.

The 28-year-old may be competing for a spot in Arsenal's starting line-up - with Ozil when he returns to full fitness as both players operate in the three positions behind the main striker.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is likely to ring the changes for the Gunners' Capital One Cup midweek match against West Brom - as he will have one eye on his side's Premier League game against Swansea City on Saturday.
