Fenerbahce president Ali Koc has hinted that the Turkish giants could soon wrap up a deal for Arsenal out of favour Mesut Ozil.
The ex-Germany international has previously stated that he would see out the remainder of his Emirates contract, but an exit in the January window now appears to be the most likely outcome.
Sports Mole said that despite reported nterest from DC United, Fenerbahce are regarded as the favourites to secure Ozil’s services, and Koc has now revealed that a deal is edging closer to completion.
“Let me tell you the latest on Mesut Ozil. We’ve said it would be a dream for Fenerbahce. The club knows what the coach wants and our transfer policy is guided by that. There hasn’t been an official announcement” said Ali Koc
“What I can say is we are closer than before. There may be a resolution, there may not be a resolution. Fenerbahce SK will make the announcement when the time comes.”
Ozil was eligible to play against Newcastle United in the FA Cup, but he was not selected by Mikel Arteta and looks set to leave Arsenal having amassed 44 goals and 77 assists in 254 appearances for the club since his arrival from Real Madrid in 2013.
