Mesut Ozil 90 Percent Certain To Leave Arsenal In January

MESUT OZIL 90 Percent Certain To Leave Arsenal In January transfer window

Having been frozen out of the Arsenal first-team under Mikel Arteta, it is reported that Mesut Ozil is sure to leave the club in the January transfer window, with a move to Turkish club Fenerbahce a very likely option.

Murat Zorlu, a Fenerbahce congress member, says the move is, “90 percent sure”, with Ozil’s contract expiring next Summer, Arsenal will be looking to get the German’s huge £350,000-a-week wage bill off their books, and the fact that Ozil is of Turkish descent, plus his wife is a one-time Miss Turkey, and she has a big following in Turkey, it seems a very likely destination.

The World Cup winner has played 254 times for The Gunners, netting 44 goals, since his £42.5m move from Real Madrid, but has not played a single minute this season under Mikel Arteta, with Ozil often criticised for his lack of work off the ball, the type of creative player who can turn a game in one sudden movement.
