Mesut Ozil edging closer to Fenerbache switch


Mesut Ozil is expected to complete a move to Turkish Super Lig club Fenerbache in the next few days. 

The 32-year-old German playmaker is in talks with Arsenal about terminating his contract in order to allow him to leave the club as a free agent next week.

Ozil was left out of the Gunners' squad for this season's Premier League and Europa League after being frozen out by manager Mikel Arteta last summer.

The World Cup winner has entered the final six months of his £350,000 contract at the Emirates but it's believed Arsenal are open to allowing him to leave in the current transfer window.

Ozil, who spent eight years at Arsenal, is a boyhood Fenerbache supporter and said this week that he would favour a switch to them over a move to the MLS.

"He is a superstar," Fenerbache sporting director Emre said of Ozil's potential move to Turkey. "We are talking about a player who contributed to a goal in every other game at every club he has played for. I would be very pleased if Fenerbahce could have such a player.

“We had a meeting with him and his manager. Mesut is closer than ever. The fact that Mesut had this childhood dream and Fenerbahce had the dream has made this step so close for the first time.”
