Ozil, who has Turkish heritage, was reportedly in talks with DC United in the MLS but is said to favour a move to Fenerbahce.
In a Twitter question and answer session with fans earlier this week, Ozil said: “If I went to Turkey, I could only go to Fenerbahce.
“I grew up as a Fenerbahce fan as a kid in Germany – every German-Turkish person supports a Turkish team when they grow up in Germany.
“And mine was Fenerbahce. Fenerbahce is like Real Madrid in Spain. The biggest club in my country.”
