Turkish Club Wants Arsenal Outcast


Turkish giants Fenerbahce are interested in signing Mesut Ozil from Arsenal. Ozil struggled to make much of an impact for the Gunners during the past season as he went on to make just 20 Premier League starts.

He has been a shadow of his former self since his disastrous 2018 World Cup showing with Germany. The former German international is currently the highest paid player within the Arsenal side. Unai Emery will be looking to offload him this summer.

“Fenerbahce are looking into the possibility of signing Mesut Ozil from Arsenal,” Sky Sports Journalist Solhekol said.

“But I don’t think Fenerbahce could really afford to buy him outright so what they’re looking for is a loan deal whereby Arsenal would continue to pay a percentage of his wages.

“Fenerbahce are at the start of a rebuilding project after finishing sixth in the Turkish league last season.

“For Ozil, he’s got this interesting situation at Arsenal where there doesn’t really seem to be a connection between him and the manager Emery.

“He was in and out of the side last season and also we’ve seen a situation develop at Arsenal where they have been trying to lower their wage bill with Aaron Ramsey and Petr Cech leaving this summer.

“Ozil earns £350,000-a-week but I don’t think there’s any way Fenerbahce could afford that, but if there was a way they could come to some sort of agreement with Arsenal where they would carry on paying some of those wages then it could happen.

“I think we’re still at the stage where talks have not taken place between the two clubs but this is something intermediaries are working on.

“If this happens it would possibly be the biggest transfer in the history of Turkish football.”
