Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil says that he does not feel the pressure of performing because he loves playing football.

Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil has claimed that he does not feel under pressure at the Emirates Stadium despite his £42.5m price tag.

The German international, who made the move from Real Madrid on transfer deadline day, said that any pressure he does feel is that which he puts on himself.

"In football I feel generally very little pressure," the 24-year-old told the DFB's official website. "I am doing what I enjoy most and what I do best.

"I love my work, so I just look forward to every game and do not concern myself so much with what others day or write.

"The pressure that I have, I mainly put on myself because I expect a high level of myself, but with this I can handle pressure very well and hide everything very well."

Ozil is currently on international duty ahead of Germany's World Cup qualifiers against the Republic of Ireland and Sweden.
