Agent confirms one of Arsenal’s best players is being eyed by Turkish giants

Ozil.jpgA few worried faces have entered the Transfer Tavern today, ready to celebrate or drown their sorrows after yesterday’s London derby, but one man has been declaring a very surprising story.

Mesut Ozil’s agent Dr Erkut Sogut popped his head in briefly earlier and has suggested that Fenerbahce are incredibly keen on signing his client at the end of the season.

Ozil, a third-generation Turkish-German, is known to be a fan of the Turkish club and the Arsenal punters playing on the quiz machine are concerned he may be lured to the continent, where he would follow the footsteps of a former captain they won’t name (Robin Van Persie to us normal folks).

Mr Sogut told Radyospor that his client would be tempted to move abroad but is happy in North London.

‘Yes, Fenerbahce wants to sign Mesut Ozil. However, the main thing is he wants Arsenal,’

‘Arsenal will make a decision at the end of the season. However, it is very difficult to predict in advance that decision. If Arsenal agrees to the transfer, Fenerbahce will be a serious option for us.’

We can’t imagine Arsenal will let their record-signing leave anytime soon but this is a club that brought an injured Kim Kallstrom and sold key-players to their biggest rivals.
