Fenerbahce have asked fans to help fund Ozil's £13million wage packet by donating money through a text message campaign.
Ozil was earning around £18million-a-year in wages from Arsenal and will be taking a pay cut when he completes a move to Fenerbahce, but the Turkish club's president Koc admitted his side needs financial support to complete the move.
Koc announced: "We have a request for our fans. Please continue to support us, we are also dependent on your financial support.
"On the day of the signature, I will ask you to break a record. With an SMS campaign.
"Maybe 300,000, 500,000 or maybe even a million text messages come together. This support will do us very good."
Text messages in the 'Mesutol campaign' will cost just under £2 and will be sent to the number 1907, which was the year Fenerbahce was founded.
