Arsenal outcast Ozil in 'secret meeting' with Fenerbahce

Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil is closing on a move to Fenerbahce.

Ozil is closing in on a move to Fenerbahce after holding a secret meeting with the club's bosses in London, says BILD.

The midfielder has not played since March after Mikel Arteta decided to leave him out of Arsenal's Premier League and Europa League squads.

The Gunners have been desperate to shed his £350,000-per-week wages and a move could finally be on the cards.

The 32-year-old held talks with Fenerbahce chiefs in London.

A move would only be possible in the summer, rather than January, and that the midfielder would take a wage cut of £200,000-per-week to sign with the Super Lig side.
