Ozil: Fenerbache set to sign Arsenal midfielder according to reports from Turkey

Mesut Ozil is set to leave Arsenal for Fenerbache according to reports coming out of Turkey

The Mesut Ozil saga at Arsenal is about to end with the 32-year-old midfielder set to join Turkish giants Fenerbache.

According to reports coming out of Turkey, the Gelsenkirchen-born German World Cup winner with Turkish heritage has agreed a three-and-a-half year contract, which brings an end to his £350,000 per week deal at Arsenal.

The Gunners will, however, pay his wages for the first six months of his Fenerbahce contract, which is worth £4.5m a year. Ozil will also receive a signing on fee of £2.2m.

Respected Turkish football expert Ekrem Konur told the Gooner Fanzine: "The Fenerbahce management is doing the necessary work to realize the transfer. It is hoped that the necessary resources will be provided in a short time and Mesut Ozil will wear the Fenerbahce jersey."

Ozil is believed to be keen to live in Istanbul and play for the 19-time Turkish champions, posting a throwback picture on Tuesday night on his personal Twitter of him in Istanbul with the caption: 'This city' to his 25m+ followers. 

The creative midfielder is said to have been 'convinced' to join Fenerbahce by Turkish media mogul and close friend Acun Ilicali.

It has also been reported that Ozil is building a luxury villa next door to club president Ali Koc.
