Would moving Ozil up front with Lacazette re-energise the German Playmaker?

This article was a comment on this morning’s piece on Arsenal trying a 352 with a partner for Lacazette. Dave suggested Giroud or Welbeck but an old Gunners Town writer got in touch suggesting an interesting alternative.
Ozil a free riole up front?
I agree with pretty much all about the formation and midfield, but ideally we would keep Ozil who could still stay, and play him as the striker with Lacazette, bringing Wilshere in as the 10. A few benefits:
1. Ozil having as much defensive responsibility as Alexis (virtually none) and a similar average position (beyond the no 9) could bring back the Ozil who dovetailed so beautifully with Alexis at 9, when he could exploit the space created by the Chilean’s movement. A huge part of his less than ideal performances has been the need to drift so far from goal to receive the ball since the loss of Cazorla...
