Turkish giants Fenerbahce have shown Mesut Ozil’s landing in Istanbul ahead of completing his move from Arsenal.
As widely covered here on Futaa this month, Ozil, 32, has negotiated an exit out of Arsenal ahead of his contract expiration in June.
The German attacking midfielder had a choice to wait it out until June 30 or move now while accepting a significant pay cut.
Ozil is expected to sign on the dotted line on Monday before the official announcement of a permanent move.
