Mesut Ozil has a ’90 percent’ chance of ending his Arsenal nightmare in January and joining Fenerbahce.
The Germany ace has been frozen out at the Emirates after he was excluded from the club’s Premier League and Europa League squads.
Ozil, 32, has vowed he will not be forced out of the club as he continues to pocket his £350,000-a-week wages.
His current deal in north London expires in the summer but Arsenal are eager to get him off the wage bill sooner rather than later.
And their prayers could be answered by the Turkish giants.
Fenerbahce’s club congress member Murat Zorlu claims Ozil is closing in on a move in January.
He told Sport Digitale: “A source, who’s very well connected to the club has told me that Mesut Ozil is likely to become a Fenerbahce player during the next transfer window.
“I would say 90 percent he will join us in one month.”
The former Germany international has family roots from Turkey despite representing Die Mannschaft 92 times, winning the World Cup in 2014.
He is also close friends with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan and has been accused of endorsing his bid for re-election.
But he was still locked in a war of words with loud mouth Piers Morgan on Monday after Ozil posted a picture of himself in front of thousands of fans at the Emirates.
He added the caption: “The feeling of having fans behind you… #grateful #bestfans #hardtimes.”
The Good Morning Britain presenter, who is an Arsenal fan, was quick to respond saying: “Real Arsenal fans aren’t behind you.
“You’re our Paul Pogba – massively overpaid, massively under-performing & shockingly overinflated sense of your own importance. #truth.”
Ozil then hit back: “Piers, buddy, are you still bitter from the other day? It seems like you’re not a big fan of World Champions.
“I wish you would see as good as you hear things.”
“But at the moment, I don’t see him being top of the shopping list for too many clubs.”
