Ozil played alongside Ronaldo while at Real Madrid. The Germany international later joined Arsenal for a club record £42 million back in September 2013.
The 27-year-old has provided 16 assists in 22 Premier League appearances this season.
Ozil is just four assists away from matching club legend Thierry Henry’s record record tally of 20 assists in a season.
Arsenal dropped five points behind league leaders Leicester City after being held to a goalless draw against Southampton at the Emirates last weekend.
The Gunners are just two points above rivals Tottenham who sit in forth place.
