Mesut Ozil and Arsenal have reached an agreement in principle which will see his contract terminated.
The German international was left out of Arsenal’s Premier League and Europa League squads earlier this season, meaning his minimal involvement on matchdays has become somewhat of a non-issue.
Not only is Ozil’s Arsenal departure close to being confirmed, he’s also understood to have chosen his next destination; with Fenerbahce winning the race to secure his services. It’s understood that he will sign a long-term contract, and he may travel to Turkey to sign on the contract by the end of the weekend.
Fenerbahce and Arsenal have yet to confirm or deny the speculation, but it seems one of the most tedious transfer stories in recent history is finally coming to an end.
