It’s 16 days since the summer transfer window closed and 105 until it opens again in January…so naturally there are rumours about the future of Mesut Ozil.
What nonsense have the press concocted this time? Well they’ve decided that our World Cup winner could be off to Turkish side Fenerbahce in the summer because his agent says they’re quite a big club.
Here’s what representative Erkut Sogut had to say to local publication Tavkim (translated by Sport Witness) about interest from Istanbul: “If he were to leave, Fenerbahce would be an option. After all, they are one of Turkey’s biggest clubs.”
“I don’t know what Arsenal would give as an answer right now, let’s look at it again at the end of the season.”
Arseblog News can’t speak on behalf of all Arsenal supporters, but we’re pretty sure you’re thinking what we’re thinking…that the response would probably something along the lines of:
“HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA….*stops to breathe*….HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. How did you even get this number? Please don’t call us again.”
Now granted, Ozil may well end up at Fenerbahce at some point – he’s a self-confessed fan of the club – but we’re pretty confident that it won’t be anytime soon. In the summer Arsene Wenger dismissed out of hand any suggestion the 26-year-old could leave the Emirates after apparent interest from Juventus.
