Mesut Ozil Future to be Finalised Shortly, According to Agent

Within Ten Days, According to Ozil Agent

In the past few weeks, the Arsenal midfielder has attracted interest from the United States, Turkey, Asia and Qatar.

Reports suggest that DC United and Fenerbahce are leading the race to sign the World Cup winner, who hasn’t played for the Gunner since March 7.

Despite the reports, Sogut has indicated that neither club have held advanced talks as of yet but a verdict will be reached before the end of next week.

What Ozil Agent Said

Speaking to ESPN, Sogut said: “We were not allowed to talk legally before Jan. 1 so now we are just starting to look at the options with the numbers and details.

“I can’t talk about the clubs directly because it would be unprofessional but generally, there is six months left on the contract and it is nothing unusual that we will talk to people about different opportunities and try to find the best option for Mesut.

“He might stay at Arsenal until the summer but he might go. Mesut’s priority is to stay but you never know in football, things can change very fast. For the moment, we are just checking all the options for January and the summer.

“If we want to leave in January, I need to talk to Arsenal. If we sign for the summer, we don’t need to. That’s the situation. In the next seven to ten days, it will be a little clearer as now the transfer window is open, things can move faster.”

Disappointing End to a Sour Arsenal Career

Mesut Ozil’s Arsenal career has been one of huge disappointment. Signed in 2013 from Real Madrid, the German hit the ground running and quickly became a fan favourite.

The 32-year-old had been a regular fixture until the last few seasons, where he struggled to reproduce the type of performances deemed worthy of his £350,000 per week contract demanded.

When Mikel Arteta replaced Unai Emery in December 2019, Ozil started the first ten games of the Spaniard’s reign but has since been omitted from the clubs Premier League and Europa League matchday squads.
