Reports: Mesut Ozil turns down Fenerbahce bid

Mesut Ozil does not seem to be part of Mikel Arteta's plans at the moment, but the midfielder is keen on remaining with the Gunners, as he has reportedly turned down an offer from Turkish Super Lig side Fenerbahce.

The former German international is yet to feature since the restart and with his deal at the Emirates expiring next summer, the media is widely reporting of his exit.

However, the former Real Madrid man is supposedly desperate to see out the remainder of his contract in North London, where he is one of the club's highest earners.

Fenerbahce have been strongly linked with a swoop for the 31-year-old in recent weeks, but according to Bild, Ozil has rejected the Turkish outfit's advances.

The report claims that Ozil is keen to fight for his spot at Arsenal and is set on staying put until next year, and the German's mammoth £350,000-a-week wages were also thought to hinder negotiations with Fenerbahce.

Ozil has scored 44 goals from 254 appearances for the Gunners since arriving in 2013, but the midfielder has only mustered one goal and two assists from 18 Premier League outings this term.
