Mesut Ozil has confirmed that he is leaving Arsenal football club for Turkish team Fenerbache, after being frozen out for months at Arsenal.
Former Germany forward Ozil said he would be travelling to Istanbul with his family, bringing to an end a seven-and-a-half year relationship with Arsenal that turned sour under current coach Mikel Arteta.
The 32-year-old has not played for the Premier League team since March 2020 and his reported deal on a weekly salary of
350,000 pounds was set to expire at the end of the current season.
However, he claimed that he is in good physical condition, despite his lengthy period on the sidelines. Reports say Ozil will sign a three-and-a-half year deal with Fenerbache worth five million euros a season.
