The former FC Basel star, who joined the Gunners in January 2016, has managed to quickly secure his place among the team’s starting 11 after putting in a number of impressive performances. He has also recently won his second consecutive Arsenal Player of the Month award.
“I love to play alongside Elneny. He is a fabulous person and an outstanding player,” Ozil, who made 19 assists during this season, one short of Thierry Henry’s record in 2003/04, told Sky News Arabia.
Elneny has started 9 games for the Gunners in the English Premier League and came on as a substitute in two matches.
Arsenal finished the Premier League campaign in the second place on 71 points, 10 away from champions Leicester City.
