Fenerbahce favourites to sign Arsenal playmaker Ozil

A close friend of Mesut Ozil's says the midfielder will likely join Fenerbahce if he leaves Arsenal.

The Gunners are reportedly not keen on extending Ozil's mammoth contract, which expires in 2021.

And Turkish TV host Acun Ilicali says Ozil prefers a move to Istanbul.

"I receive lots of questions about Mesut Ozil. I believe in the future the good things will happen," he said in a live Instagram Q&A, via Sport Witness.

"I'm not in a position to give details but I know our president is also working hard for this.

"When his contract with Arsenal will expire, the favourites would be Fenerbahce. We are also working on that front.

"I really wanted to tell you in more detail, but I cannot. We'll talk about these things when the time comes."
