Fenerbahce seek outside sponsors for Ozil Jan deal with Arsenal

Fenerbahce are exploring the prospect to taking Mesut Ozil off Arsenal's hands this month.

With Ozil's deal to expire in June, Fener are open to taking the midfielder on-loan for the remainder of the season, reports Fanatik.

However, with the midfielder refusing to take a pay-cut, any deal will require Fener finding outside funding.

And the Turkish giants are now in process of securing sponsors to help bankroll the short-term deal. Fener have enjoyed previous success with such a strategy in their signing of Moussa Sow.

For his part, Ozil has already given Fener president Ali Koc a verbal commitment that he would be willing to move to Istanbul in 2021.
