Joachim Low says that Mesut Ozil's move to Arsenal will benefit the German national team.

Germany manager Joachim Low believes that Mesut Ozil's late transfer to Arsenal will benefit the national team as well as the player.

The 24-year-old joined the Gunners on transfer deadline day for a club-record fee of £42.5m from Real Madrid, signing a five-year contract with the North London outfit.

Low feels that Ozil will thrive under the tutelage of Arsene Wenger, as well as playing alongside some of his international teammates.

"What I've heard the last days before this transfer, is that this trust had disappeared in Madrid," Low said in a press conference. "Arsenal and Wenger put a lot of effort in to get him, which did him, of course, a lot of good.

"That's why I think personally for us, for the national team, it's a good transfer. Arsenal is a good club, with a top manager and also two German team mates, [Lukas] Podolski and [Per] Mertesacker.

"Arsenal also play great football, technically on a high level, and I think that plays into Mesut's game."

Ozil initially moved to Madrid from Werder Bremen in 2010.
