Ozil has been likened to Bergkamp, now No2 at Ajax.
"I don't like comparing. We're all unique. But I do understand the similarities people see and I believe he can be very important to the team," said Bergkamp to the Telegraph.
"It is still early days. He is a tremendous player with a lot of effective skills like controlling the ball, making creative passes and assists, taking the right position in the field every time. And he's extremely experienced.
"Putting all that together I think you've got a player who can be the missing link in the Arsenal team, a player who will make a striker score goals, who will link up in Arsenal's position-game and who will score goals as well.
"Ozil knows exactly how to control the ball in what kind of space to give himself time. That's the difference between the players and great players. With his intelligence and his touch and his skills, he is trying to do something right with every ball."
