Fenerbahce agree in principle to sign Ozil
Fenerbahce will supposedly sign Arsenal’s German midfielder Mesut Ozil in a three-and-a-half year deal for an undisclosed cost.
Turkey’s private Demiroren news agency and other Turkish media reported on Wednesday the club had settled on the transfer in concept and the 32-year-old will sign up with the previous Turkish champs later in January.
Fenerbahce Chairman Ali Koc stated previously signing Ozil, who has Turkish origins, was a “great dream” for the club, who have actually suffered from monetary issues over the last few years.
Koc had actually stated Fenerbahce would need to offload gamers to make any transfers in January.
Ozil sustained rumours about a move to Fenerbahce with an Instagram post about Istanbul on Tuesday.
The German has not played for Arsenal given that March 2020 and was not named in the team list for the first half of the current Premier League season.
He has long been connected with a relocation to Fenerbahce, Turkey’s second most decorated club.
Ozil, who is among the highest-paid gamers at Arsenal, is out of agreement at the end of the season. But the club is aiming to unload gamers in January to trim the team.
Last week, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta had actually stated the club would wait on the January transfer window to make a final call about the German nationwide’s fate.
Arsenal are currently 11th in the standings on 23 points, while Fenerbahce are 5th in Turkey’s leading tier Super Lig on 29 points, two behind league leaders Gaziantep.
