Mesut Ozil and Arsenal have finalised agreement for the German to terminate his contract according to reports from UK outlet The Athletic.

The 32-year-old is expected to travel this weekend to complete a move to Fenerbahce after a deal was agreed with the Turkish club.

Ozil was scheduled to earn around £7 million between now and the end of his contract in June. A deal has been reached in principle, however, for an early termination.

The German midfielder is the highest-paid Gunners star with £350,000-a-week wages but has failed to taste any competitive action this campaign.

Ozil has been linked with Turkish League giants Fenerbahce and other clubs around the world and he could join any team of his choice for free.

The midfielder moved to the North London club about eight years ago under Arsene Wenger, but subsequent managers have failed to involve him in their plans.

However, the former Real Madrid star has one major setback as he is expected to receive a loyalty bonus if he stays till the end of his contract, a waiver he would of course have to ditch by leaving this winter.

Negotiations are reportedly concluded in order to thrash out the deal to allow Ozil to leave north London.

Meanwhile, Mikel Arteta appeared to admit that Ozil had played his last game for the club while insisting his legacy was not tarnished by the ordeal this season.

The Spaniard said: “What Mesut has done at the football club is unquestionable and that will stay. It doesn’t matter if he plays two more games, 10 more games or none."
