Crystal Palace star Yohan Cabaye has heaped praise on one of the key players in the Arsenal team.

The Frenchman was once linked with a move to Arsenal during his days at Newcastle.

Cabaye is known to be an admirer of Arsene Wenger’s and he might have just expressed that affection again.

When asked in an interview to name whom he thought was the ‘strongest’ – or effectively best – player in the English top flight at the moment, he picked out Mesut Ozil.

“The strongest player in England, I think? Mesut Ozil. He is really, very strong.” the Frenchman said

“You get the impression that he does not care, that he is nonchalant, but at one point he will put a pass that nobody has seen.

“He always knows everything before everyone else. That’s what is fabulous about him.”

Ozil is yet to extend his contract at the Emirates stadium which only has one year remaining.
