The Germany international is out of contract at the end of the season and is being strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford.
Jose Mourinho is understood to be keen on a reunion with a player he managed at Real Madrid.
It’s been mooted that a deal could be agreed this month, with Arsenal potentially looking to cash in instead of seeing him leave for nothing over the summer.
Ozil could yet agree fresh terms at Arsenal, but Wright believes the playmaker would flourish more at Manchester United.
‘I don’t think he’s that type of player who will drag a team by its bootlaces through a game, but if your team is playing well, he’s going to sprinkle stardust all over the place.
‘With the players he’d be playing with at Man Utd as well, he is unbelievable.
‘He is just awesome, and with the right team, and the right movement in front of him, he is easily one of the best I’ve seen. He’s amazing.’

Wright, who scored 185 goals during his time at Highbury, said he took no pleasure in admitting Manchester United would be a better club than Arsenal for Ozil.
‘Is this difficult to say? Yeah. And we can’t keep arguably two [Ozil and Alexis Sanchez] of the best players, arguably in the history of the club, ability-wise. It’s sad times.’
