Arsenal transfers: Mesut Ozil’s agent responds to exit talk
Mesut Ozil's agent confirms that Fenerbahce want to sign the Arsenal playmaker at the end of the season
Mesut Ozil’s agent has confirmed that Fenerbahce want to sign the Arsenal playmaker at the end of the season.
The German World Cup winner has been touted as a possible transfer target for the Turkish side in recent weeks, despite Ozil’s apparent desire to stay at Emirates Stadium.
Now, the playmaker’s representative Erkut Sogut has said that the Turkish side have signalled their interest in signing Ozil and that Arsenal will make a decision at the end of the season.
Sogut is quoted as saying by Radyospor: “Yes, Fenerbahce wants to sign Mesut Ozil. However, the main thing is he wants Arsenal.
“Arsenal will make a decision at the end of the season.
“However, it is very difficult to predict in advance that decision. If Arsenal agrees to the transfer, Fenerbahce will be a serious option for us.”
The 26-year-old attacker has made five Premier League appearances for Arsenal so far this season and was an unused substitute as the Gunners secured a 2-1 win at Tottenham Hotspur in the third round of the League Cup on Wednesday night.
He has notched up two assists in the Premier League and will be looking to add to that tally when Arsenal return to top-flight action at Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.
