Club president responds to report that Ozil is set to join them

Fenerbahce president Ali Koc has responded to rumours that his team is set to sign Mesut Ozil next month.

Ozil has been axed from the Arsenal first-team set up this season, and the German is expected to look for a move away from Arsenal in the next transfer window.

He has remained adamant that he will see out his deal at the Emirates, but Arsenal remains hopeful that a team will take him.

Reports from the Turkish media earlier today said that Ozil is likely to join Fenerbahce in January, but the club’s president has now said that they cannot afford him.

He admitted that Ozil is a fan of his team but says that the dream of bringing him in doesn’t look like one that can come true.

Ozil is a really big Fenerbahce fan,” Koc said as quoted by Turkish Football.

“However, we do not have the financial resources to pull off such a move at this time.”

“It’s a lovely dream.

“Dreams do occasionally come true but it would be really difficult for this dream to become reality.”

Ozil seems unbothered by not playing football this season even though the German continues to train with the Arsenal first team.

  1. Its all a bit of a sorry state of affairs really, whichever way you look at it Arsenal are the losers really,they paid a lot of money for him and he has earned a grotesque amount of cash from them but we have never really seen the best of what was a world class number 10 and have certainly not had our moneys worth. I think he should move on asap for his own good and and the good of the club.

    1. @Tommogun58 hope you noticed where are you and your arsenal on the log without ozil creativity 😂 even Auba .s agent noticed that arsenal lacking creativity that’s why Auba can’t score goal Shame on you ozill will end his contract at arsenal – arsenal will be relegated or finished at number 18 if luck

  2. He’s not bothered because he’ll collect his huge pay cheque every week. After that he’ll retire. We gonna experience the same scenario with Willian and Auba
