Mesut Ozil has a verbal agreement with Arsenal to terminate his contract this weekend and will join Fenerbahce in the coming days, sources have told ESPN.
Talks are ongoing over the exact numbers involved but sources have told ESPN that Ozil will not receive all of the approximately £7m in wages he is owed.
Instead, he will join Fenerbahce as a free agent after the Turkish club beat off competition from MLS side D.C. United to his signature.
Ozil is expected to go to the training ground tomorrow to say his goodbyes, sources have told ESPN, as the team prepares for Monday’s Premier League home game against Newcastle.
The 32-year-old had been frozen out of the first-team picture at Emirates Stadium to the extent he was not even registered for Premier League or Europa League action this season.
