On the other hand, a member of Fenerbache's hierarchy, Murat Zorlu, has claimed the club are 90 per cent sure of landing the 31-year-old.

He told Sport Digitale quoted by Mirror:

"A source, who's very well connected to the club has told me that Mesut Ozil is likely to become a Fenerbahce player during the next transfer window.
"I would say 90 per cent he will join us in one month."

Arsenal are presently languishing in 15th position and are just four points off the relegation spot after managing a win in their last Premier League outing.

Arteta's men will file out against Chelsea on Boxing Day in a London derby at the Emirates and a further defeat would see the Gunners slip down on the table.
