Arsenal midfielder, Mesut Ozil has made a very big transfer decision following reports that Turkish outfit Fenerbahce have submitted a bid for him.

It was earlier believed that the World Cup winner will prefer a move to Turkey despite having interests from clubs in Japan, Italy, Qatar, and Germany.

The former Real Madrid playmaker has not been a major part of the Mikel Arteta’s team, and it is unlikely there will be any improvements in the nearest future.

With an opportunity presenting itself from his reported wish, The Bild reports that he has turned down the offer to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer window.

With his contract set to expire in the coming summer, it is feared that Mesut Ozil will remain in London until the end which means the Gunners might not cash in on him as he would be leaving as a free player.

Efforts by the North London outfit to have Mesut Ozil sold have been unsuccessful as a result of his £350,000-a-week which scares clubs away.

Commentators have claimed that only by clubs will be able to snap up the German International because of his huge wage demand and unfortunately none are looking at his direction at the moment.

Mike Arteta has constantly stressed that Mesut Ozil will get his chance when he is ready, hinting on the player’s shortfall in fitness and mental strength.
