Arsenal reach agreement with Mesut Özil to terminate contract

Arsenal have came to an agreement in principle with Mesut Özil to terminate his contract with immediate effect, per The Athletic.

That is according to a report from David Ornstein, who states that it now brings the 32-year-old’s exit even closer.

After reaching that agreement with the club, Özil is expected to travel to Turkey this weekend ahead of completing his long-awaited move to Fenerbahçe.

The Germany international was still due to receive in the region of £7 million in wages between now and the end of June, when his contract expired.

However, the parties have now reached a deal in principle that will see that contract ripped up early, allowing Özil to leave on a free.

The story goes on to state that Fenerbahçe have already agreed personal terms with the playmaker’s camp.

Özil hasn’t featured for the Gunners since March of last year.
