Mesut Ozil is on the brink of joining Fenerbahce after agreeing a contract with them. The Arsenal star will see his terms at the Emirates come to an end in the summer and he is free to talk to foreign clubs over a potential move.
Ozil has reportedly agreed a contract with Fenerbahce as his time at Arsenal draws nearer to a close.
The German is able to talk to other clubs over a pre-contract agreement with his current £350,000-a-week deal coming to an end this summer.
Mikel Arteta has ostracised the playmaker completely after not naming him in either Premier League or Europa League squads at the start of the season.
It has left Ozil on the outside while other clubs have been interested in his services.
And one of those has been Fenerbahce, who have long been linked with the 32-year-old throughout his testing times in north London.
According to Turkish outlet DHA, Ozil has agreed a contract with the Istanbul club and will sign imminently.
Arsenal will pay his wages until the end of the season, where he will begin a three-year deal with the Superliga giants.
It has been a long dream of Ozil’s to play for the Turkish club, who he has a close affinity to.
He said prior to the match against West Brom: “We will see what happens in the transfer window and we will assess at the end of that.
“You have to respect the players’ contracts.
“You can just try to be open with them, tell them your intentions, the role that they have in the team and why that is.”
