According to David Ornstein in The Athletic (£), Arsenal and Mesut Ozil have reached an agreement over the early termination of his contract.
EXCLUSIVE: Arsenal & Mesut Ozil have an agreement in principle to terminate contract with immediate effect + end his 7.5yr #AFC career. If all goes to plan Fenerbahce expect 32yo to travel this weekend & complete move to #FENER as free agent @TheAthleticUK https://t.co/b9JCDK3miJ

It leaves the German free to secure a well reported move to Fenerbahce during the January transfer window, and will bring an end to his career in North London.
Since joining from Real Madrid in September 2013, Ozil has made 254 appearances for the club, scoring 44 goals and making 77 assists.
He was part of the team for the FA Cup final wins in 2014, 2015, and 2017 – but missed out on the 2020 final having been left out of the squad following lockdown.
It’s a sad way for his time at Arsenal to come to an end, but the best of luck to him in the next chapter of his career in the Turkish Super Lig.
