Mesut Ozil is on the brink of joining Fenerbahce after agreeing a contract with them. Prominent Arsenal fan Piers Morgan has had his say as the German 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.
Piers Morgan has responded brutally on Twitter to Mesut Ozil’s impending departure from Arsenal.
Fenerbahce have reportedly agreed a contract with the German and he is closing in on a move to the Turkish club.
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.
And Piers has had his say, in typical Morgan fashion.
Responding to the transfer rumours, the Good Morning host tweeted: “BOOM! Finally, some good news in 2021!
“If you need a (covid-secure) lift to the airport @MesutOzil1088, let me know.”
Ozil and Piers often have swipes at each other on social media in one of the more bizarre trends of Arsenal life.
The ex-Real Madrid star was also in talks with MLS clubs, principally DC United who had made him an extravagant offer.
But the allure of Fenerbahce has proved stronger, despite the American club promising added bonuses off the pitch in terms of commercial deals with Ozil’s company Class 5 Global, which is based in San Francisco.
Arteta insisted that they would not let Ozil leave Arsenal for free, despite DHA reporting otherwise.
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.”
