Klopp described the German playmaker as "one of the best players in the world", insisting he could be the catalyst for a fine season at the Emirates.
"Ozil has taken Arsenal up a level," Klopp told The Sun. "His tactical ability for offensive football is perfect, and that's what Arsene [Wenger] wants.
"He wants smooth players, good technicians. Ozil is perfect with his technique and speed.
"The new players, together with the experience of the last two seasons, can make them champions. Arsenal have a better team and the same manager, so for me they are the favourites for the Premier League."
