Transfer: Mesut Ozil’s new club agrees to pay £8million of his wages
Arsenal playmaker, Mesut Ozil, could be on his way to Fenerbahce, after the club agreed to pay part of his wages for a loan deal, Fanatik reports.
Ozil has struggled under Manager Unai Emery last season, who dropped him many times for tactical reasons.
The World Cup winner is also a huge strain on the club’s resources, as he is the Gunners’ highest paid.
Ozil is a boyhood Fenerbahce fan and the Turkish club are confident they can bring the midfielder in, on loan for the season.
The 30-year-old earns around £13.5million per season at Arsenal, but Fenerbahce are looking to pay £8million of his wages for the coming campaign.
The Gunners will pay the remaining £5.5million.
Ozil, however, appears keen to remain at Arsenal, amid claims he loves living in London.
