Mesut Ozil’s time at Arsenal appears to finally be over after the midfielder reportedly agreed to join Turkish side Fenerbahce.

The door has been open for his exit since last year and Ozil has now agreed to make the move to Turkey where he has strong links.

The 32-year-old has been firmly out of favour under Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta

Reports in Turkey suggest it is a ‘dream move’ for the 32-year-old who is expected to join the 19-time Turkish league winners this month.

He has agreed a three-and-a-half year contract, which brings to an end his £350,000 per week deal at Arsenal.

Ozil, who had been in talks with US side DC United, posted a throwback picture on Tuesday night on Twitter of him in Istanbul with the caption: ‘This city.’

Ozil was left out of the official Arsenal squad for the Premier League and Europa League

He has been firmly out of favour at the Emirates under Arteta and hasn’t played a single game all season after being left out of both official squads for the Premier League and Europa League. 

Arteta hinted recently that Arsenal’s big earners would have to leave the club in January, adding: ‘We cannot sustain the numbers we have.’

Ozil had been happy to see out his current deal, which was due to expire in the summer.
