According to Turkish newspaper Takvim, Fenerbahce have opened talks with Arsenal with regards to loaning Mesut Özil.

After falling out of favour with Arsenal manager Unai Emery, Özil is said to be considering his future and Takvim claim the 30 year old is looking to leave the club this January to make a fresh start.

It’s reported Fenerbahçe’s director of football Damien Comolli is in transfer discussions with Arsenal and that the Gunners are said to be keen to pay some of his wages in order to offload him.

Takvim claim if everything goes well then, a ‘dream’ transfer could turn into reality for Fenerbahçe.

The Yellow Canaries were linked with a move to Özil last summer and with his situation with Arsenal not getting any better, there’s a chance the Süper Lig side could land him.

Özil is a boyhood Fenerbahçe fan and he’s stated numerous times he would love to play for the club before hanging up his boots.

The former Real Madrid midfielder is under contract at the Emirates until June 2021.
