Arsenal fans are finally going to have to accept that Mesut Ozil is leaving the club, with the German World Cup winner posting an image on social media confirming that he’s on route to Turkey to finalise a transfer.
Ozil is now expected to put pen to paper on a deal that will see him join Turkish giants Fenerbahce, his boyhood club, ending eight years at Arsenal.

Viewers of the image will spot a couple of well-positioned flags in the background of the private jet adorning the club crest of Fenerbahce.
Ozil’s contract with Arsenal is terminated, with talks successfully taking place between both parties in the past week.
