In the “next few days” Mesut Ozil’s Arsenal career looks likely to end with a decision on his future anticipated soon, according to Mikel Arteta.
An agreement had already been signed with Fenerbahce, suggested sources from Turkey and although Arteta would not confirm if this was valid, he did state that a decision was anticipated quite soon.
Either way, Mikel Arteta expects news about the future of Mesut Ozil in the coming days, with the midfielder attached to Fenerbahce.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Arteta told reporters on Thursday. “Now he’s free to negotiate with other clubs, we will discuss internally the best situation for him, for the near future, with the player and the agent and try to find the best solution for everybody.
“Every player wants to play football, this is why we picked this profession. We are so lucky to be doing what we do, so for every player not playing, it is hard.
“We will decide what happens in the next few days.”
