Ozil Set To Dump Arsenal For Fenerbahce

Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil is close to completing a move to Turkish club Fenerbahce.

The 32-year-old still has half a season left on his Arsenal contract but both parties are in advanced talks which they expect to lead to an agreement to terminate it.

That would pave the way for the move to Istanbul in the coming days.

Ozil has not played for Arsenal since a 1-0 win over West Ham in March and has been frozen out by boss Mikel Arteta.

He joined the club in a £42.4m move from Real Madrid in 2013 and helped them win the FA Cup three times.

Ozil spoke of his admiration for the Turkish side during a social media question-and-answer session during the week.

“Fenerbahce is like Real Madrid in Spain. The biggest club in the country,” he told followers.

Media reports in Turkey earlier this month claimed Fenerbahce would be signing Ozil in January.

And when asked about that manager Arteta said a move would only happen if it was “the best solution for everybody”.

Ozil was born in Germany but has Turkish heritage, and Fenerbahce chairman Ali Koc has said previously that signing Ozil was a “nice dream”.

In 2019 the 19-time Super Lig champions ruled out a move for Ozil for “economic” reasons.

The Istanbul-based club have suffered financial problems in recent years and saw Istanbul Basaksehir win their first league title last July.
