Midfielder Mesut Ozil has reportedly edged closer to a move away from Arsenal during the summer transfer window.
Despite having penned a long-term contract during the closing months of Arsene Wenger’s reign, Ozil has been linked with an exit from the Gunners since the arrival of Unai Emery.
Fans have recently been seen on social media making suggestions the player is now a shadow of his former self and the club should do away with him. Added to the fact that he’s Arsenal’s highest paid player hasn’t made the narrative any better.
Arsenal are currently restricted in the transfer market due to Ozil’s wages, although it appears that the North Londoners may be on the brink of finding a resolution.
According to reports in Turkey, Fenerbahce currently have “a 50-51%” chance of sealing a deal for the playmaker, who still has two years remaining at the Emirates Stadium.
A loan move with Arsenal covering a portion of Ozil’s wages seems to be the most likely conclusion, providing that Fenerbahce can find financial backing to sign a player who has Turkish heritage.
