FENERBAHCE are in talks with Arsenal about bringing Mesut Ozil to Turkey on loan in January.
The German playmaker has been ommited from the last three matchday squads – leading to speculation his career at the Emirates is nearing an end.
And it has been claimed that the Gunners are determined to ship him off on loan in January- and are even prepared to pay him to depart.
The 30-year-old playmaker has played only one game in the Premier League this campaign, with Emery preferring the likes of Dani Ceballos instead.
Asked why he was omitted from the squad that faced Standard Liege last week, Emery said: “I am thinking every time to decide the best players for each match and the best players in the squad to play and to help us.
“When I decided he shouldn’t be in the squad it’s because I think other players deserved it more.”
And Fenerbahce are said to be willing to offer him an escape route, with Turkish outlet Takvim claiming they are set to revive their interest in the German midfielder.
They state that the ex-Real Madrid star wants join his boyhood club, with Fenerbahce’s director of football Damien Comolli in talks with the Gunners.
It has even been reported that the North London giants are ready to pay a part of his wages.
