Ozil joined the Gunners on deadline day for a club-record £42.5m and he was instrumental in his side's win 3-1 over Stoke City as he created all three strikes.
Wenger told reporters: "He gave a lift to everyone at the club. He will be the point of our team work, team play.
"He will get better when he fully integrates into the pace of the game. He's a player, when you look at his numbers, the assists are not a coincidence, they are a reality of his game. He is a great player.
"Football is football, good players make good passes, bad players make bad passes. Same in England. He has good pace as well, he plays a lot focusing on passing but he can create."
Arsenal moved back to the top of the Premier League table with the win over the Potters.
