Jan, 7TH 2020 – Mesut Ozil’s time at Arsenal could be over as soon as next week after his agent confirmed that the out-of-favor star is making up his mind on his next move.
Reports in Turkey on Wednesday suggested that Ozil , who has been frozen out by Mikel Arteta this season, had agreed to join Fenerbahce this month.
However, Ozil’s agent, Dr Erkut Sogut, has revealed that the former Germany international is undecided about whether to leave in January amid interest from clubs in America, Asia and Qatar.
Dr Sogut said, “He might stay at Arsenal until the summer but he might go. Mesut’s priority is to stay but you never know in football, things can change very fast. For the moment, we are just checking all the options for January and the summer.”
Reports in Turkey had suggested a switch to Fenerbahce would be a ‘dream move’ for the 32-year-old.
It was claimed that he had agreed a three-and-a-half year deal, with the Gunners paying his wages for the first six months of his Fenerbahce contract, worth £4.5m a year.
The report also stated that Ozil would receive a signing on fee of £2.2m.
Ozil, who has also been in talks with US side DC United, fueled speculation by posting a throwback picture on Tuesday night of him in Istanbul with the caption: ‘This city.’
