Ozil in talks with Arsenal to end Gunners stay while Fenerbahce waits in the wings

Mesut Ozil and Arsenal are in talks over ending his contract at the club as Fenerbahce waits to sign him.

This month seems to be the time when the Gunners will finally get rid of the high-earning German.

He didn’t play any football in the first half of this season, and that might be the case for this second half of the campaign if he stays.

The midfielder is now edging closer to a move to the Turkish side and Fabrizio Romano confirms that a move for him is very much on the cards.

He claimed that the midfielder and Arsenal are currently in talks over the way forward in his career.

The Gunners and the midfielder haven’t reached an agreement over his contract termination at the moment, but the talks are still ongoing.

He also has some assurances from Fenerbahce that he would have a new home when he leaves the Gunners.

They have even told him that they are willing to wait until the end of this transfer window to land him.

He tweeted: “More about Özil. Negotiations are still on with Arsenal to terminate his contract [no agreement yet]. Fenerbahçe board told Özil they’re ‘ready to wait until the end of the window’ to sign him. Fener keep pushing and even their manager Bulut wants Mesut strongly.”

    Money over everything- Ozil

    He must honour his contract. No need for termination of contract.

        David Ornstein has reported that Ozil and the club have agreed on a severance package. So you can book the the flight on Turkish Air. I find the whole saga pretty sad but I thought Ozil was a class act before he came to Arsenal.

    Wants to leave and wants every penny. Make a choice

      Who’s that GunnerDev, the club or the player? Make a choice as you say.

      If only that contract wasn’t legally binding for both parties.

        Ozil is extremely wealthy, so money is not an object. Clearly he’s more interested in causing problems for Arsenal than playing football.

        Thank you Wenger and Gazidis for creating this mess!

          Exactly Ken1945, Ozil’s intention is to create scene at arsenal befour he leaves, for crying out loud Ozil is not the first player to fall in to a situation like this, Sanzes was in the same position and now he has left Man U for good.

            Before leaving Man Utd Sanchez did the same thing as Ozil he worked out a financial package so he is no different!

    Just do something already so we can finally move from under this cloud of shite…the only thing worse than paying such a considerable sum for someone who’s not even playing, is constantly having to rehash the matter with little or no prospects of coming to some sort of logical resolution

    in four months time there would not be any hassle…..

    he can choose whatever club he likes
