Cape Town - Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil feels that young German players would benefit from following his example by moving to the English Premier League.

Ozil took a season or two to find his feet with the Gunners after a £42.5m move from Real Madrid in 2013, but is now one of the top performers in the league.

And the German international feels that budding young stars from his home country should not hesitate if given the chance to move to England.

"German youth players have excellent reputations, and top foreign top clubs become aware of them quickly," the 27-year-old told the Bild.

"If a player in the German national team asks me how it is in England, I'd reply: 'If you have the opportunity to do it.'

"If I was again facing a decision whether to move abroad, I would do it like this again, 100 percent."
