Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil's form will be frightening upon properly settling in English football, according to ex-club favourite Ray Parlour.
Ozil made a sterling start to his Gunners career following his record move to the Premier League and has scored four goals and made eight assists in 19 league appearances.
The German's form has varied during the second half of the campaign however and though Parlour concedes Ozil's best form is still to come for Arsenal, he is expecting a stellar campaign next season.
"Mesut Ozil will be a frightening prospect once he has completely settled into the team," Parlour told The Evening Standard.
"I think his best is yet to come. It says something when the likes of Ronaldo at Real Madrid were sad to see him leave because of the number of goals he set up there.
"He's still learning about English football but when we see the best of Ozil he will be absolutely frightening."
Ozil will be crucial for Arsenal as the club enter a pivotal period in the season, with two matches against Liverpool coming either side of the visit of Manchester United and then the Champions league last 16 first leg against Bayern Munich.
Though Arsenal made just one addition in January in the form of Swede Kim Kallstrom, the club have recently welcomed back Alex Oxalde-Chamberlain from injury, while Jack Wilshere is also on the verge of a return
Parlour added: "This is a crucial time of the season with games coming thick and fast. You need extra bodies now. Arsene Wenger knew the gamble he was making and has made sure that Arsenal only have to pay half his wages until he's fit - once he is fit I think he will be a good singing for the club."
"Kallström has got experience and can also help the younger players in the squad. When the pressure kicks in with eight games to go, every single point is important and experienced players like him can help players like Wilshere."
"Arsenal have got every chance to win the league, It's going to be competitive towards the end but Chelsea certainly looked really solid the other night down the middle against Manchester City who also have real quality. At the moment it's out of those three teams who's going to win it."
