Ozil has bid farewell to the Emirates Stadium after seven-and-a-half years ahead of his move to the Turkish Super Lig club.

The German midfielder had been frozen out by Gunners manager Mikel Arteta since last season, but Wenger, who signed Ozil in 2014, feels he will do better in Turkey.

"I'm sure that he's frustrated at not having played. His hunger must be absolutely (enormous) to play football again," the three-time Premier League-winning manager told BeIN SPORTS.

"Mesut is a guy who needs a warm environment and I believe he will find that more than anywhere else in Turkey. Overall, he can provide the balls that the strikers need to win football games.

"If they do that well, they have a good chance of winning the league. Mesut is like if you imagine an orchestra in music. He's a guy who plays the ball at the right time.

"The timing of his pass is exceptional, but the creativity of his pass is as well. In every situation he confronts, he gives the right answer and that is genius."
