Arsenal News: Strange club eyes Mesut Ozil deal

Mesut Ozil

Arsenal star Mesut Ozil could join Turkish giants Fernerbache.

That is according to Turkish news outlet Fotomac, who claim Fernerbache are preparing an audacious approach in January.


Ozil signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract worth £350,000 per-week in January, but the arrival of Unai Emery has left the 29-year-old’s future in doubt.

Rumours spread that the pair had fallen out before Arsenal’s 3-1 victory over West Ham last month, which Ozil supposedly missed due to illness.


And now talks of a January departure is in full swing.

Fotomac claim Fenerbache are front-runners for the playmaker’s signature with Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United also monitoring the situation.

The Daily Mail add that Arsenal would sell for a fee in the region of £42million, but Fernerbache matching his £350,000k wages seems unlikely.
