The Arsenal midfielder and many of his teamates are calling Ozil's move as "the best bargain" possible, even though the unofficial reported fee of £42.5 million for a proported five-year deal makes him the most expensive German football player of all time.
Manager Arsene Wenger also gave Ozil the coveted number 11 shirt for the star midfielder after signing him on tansfer deadline day.
"I freaked when I knew Real Madrid let him leave and he was joining us," Cazorla said.
"He's a huge player for us. He arrived humble and ready to achieve things. It's obvious you can learn from him. He's a different player, with genius details.
"I don't know if pressure was too much for him [as Florentino Perez claimed] but Ozil had great moments defending Real Madrid."
After five wins and a draw since the start of the season, the north London club now sit at the top of the Premier League table and Cazorla believes Ozil's genius is just the spark needed for Arsenal to end their long trophy drought.
"We feel confident as we began with two Champions League wins and we're on the top at the Premier League," the Spaniard continued.
The Gunners may lead the pack for now but they have stiff competition ahead, with upcoming matches against the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United.
