Ozil heading out of Arsenal?

German midfielder Mesut Ozil could reportedly be heading through the Arsenal exit door amid the speculated interest from Turkish giants Fenerbahce.

Ozil has struggled to make much of an impression since penning a bumper £350,000-a-week contract last year and this has spread speculation that he could be shown the exit door.

According to Haberturk, Fenerbahce have expressed an interest in signing the former World Cup winner and and they are understood to have a 50-51 percent chance of luring the midfielder from the Emirates.

The same publication claims that the Istanbul outfit may only prefer a season-long loan while the Gunners may have to pay a portion of the attacker's hefty wages.

Ozil has been with the Gunners for six seasons where he has racked 231 appearances in all competitions. In the past few years, he has been lacking the consistency in terms of creating goals and this has drawn criticism from a section of the fans.
