Agent opens up and officially hands Arsenal fans an update on the transfer of Mesut Ozil
Mesut Ozil’s agent Erkut Sogut gave an update on the Arsenal transfer latest with a move to Fenerbahce looking increasingly likely.
Ozil’s topsy-turvy seven-and-a-half years at the Emirates looks set to end by the end of the January window as he looks for a move to Turkish Giants Fenerbahce, who have reportedly agreed a deal with the German star.
The 32-year-old splits opinion, from those who consider him a victim of the whole saga to those who see him as a player that just cares about the money and his lifestyle off the pitch, but no-one has ever doubted his quality.
But amid the speculation, his agent gave an update on the transfer latest: “Mesut Ozil can now meet with any club he wants, sign a contract. Whatever is best for Mesut,” he told BEIN.
“Mesut only lacks match fitness. There is no training lacking. Mesut is fit for now.
“Everyone knows that Mesut is from Fenerbahce. He announced it yesterday. Mesut is not just a football player. Mesut is Fenerbahce.”
“He always said that if he came to Turkey, he would only play for Fenerbahce.
“I think it is very important that Mesut comes not only as a footballer but also as a lover of Fenerbahce.”
“There is a process at the moment. We can’t say it’s over until we’ve signed it in the process. I hope so.”
Arsenal cant wait to see the back of Ozil, but many will surely be left feeling like they missed out on seeing the very best of the German. He is a very gifted player that should have been a world beater.
Shame really, but a move away is the best thing for the man.
