Fenerbache are reportedly considering a move for Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil in the summer. Manager Arsene Wenger is now ready to listen to offers for the German international.

Mesut Ozil looks set to make a move away from Arsenal in the summer, not yet signing a contract extension at The Emirates. His contract, along with Alexis Sanchez’s ends next summer.

And his most likely​ destination now seems Fenerbache. The Turkish club will have money for big-spending in the transfer window, with Robin Van Persie leaving.

Ozil has a deep Turkish connection. His parents are from the country, and he is rumoured to marry former Miss Turkey Amine Gulse. He is also reportedly ready to spend £5 million on a mansion in the capital.

The Istanbul club would want to take advantage of the situation, and add some class to their line-up. The 28-year old doesn’t seem satisfied with Arsenal’s performances of late.

Other than the contract stand-off, Arsene Wenger is also frustrated by Ozil’s form and fitness.He hasn’t started a game since the London club was thrashed 1-5 by Bayern Munich in Germany. He has also often been accused of not having an impact in big fixtures.

The 2014 World Cup winner had cost Arsenal £42.5million when moving from Real Madrid. Arsenal management, and Wenger would want to atleast recoup £30m of that money.

Unlike team-mate Sanchez, the star is not being linked to too many big clubs in Europe.Selling him to Fenerbache would also mean they are not selling him to a direct rival. The other option for them of course, would be China.
