Transfer balls: Arsenal’s Ozil boosts his pay with a Fenerbahce offer

Transfer balls: The Daily Star says Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil, 28, was involved in transfer talks over the summer. The club? Fenerbahce.

It would be remarkable were the German star to leave the Gunners for the Turkish side.

The Daily Star says this is an “Arsenal transfer bombshell”. It says Ozil has held “secret talks with another club” during a 17-hour stay in Istanbul. The Sun agrees: “Ozil held secret talks with Turkish giants Fenerbahce.”

The source for this is Hurriyet, which says Ozil will “surely play for Fenerbahce in the coming years”.

How they know this is moot. We only know that Ozil is engaged in talks to extend his Arsenal deal. Talk of another rich club getting involved should hurry things along and up any offer, right?

And none of this is new news. In 2015, the Metro reported that Ozil could be on his way to Fenerbahce.

The Express reported: “Arsenal to receive ‘serious’ bid for Mesut Ozil next summer – agent.”

Vatan reported that the source of all this is Fenerbahce president Aziz Yildirim, who made it know that he loves Ozil.

Anyone smell the agent’s fingers in this balls?
