Mesut Ozil will receive a 'serious' offer from Fenerbahce for his services, according to the player's agent.

The Germany international's parents are Turkish and he has previously said he would like to 'wear the shirt' of the Super Lig club later one day.

Erkut Sogut, who represents the Arsenal midfielder, told Turkish newspaper Takvim: "Fenerbahce are serious but it all depends on what answer Arsenal give. It will all become clear at the end of the season."


"At Arsenal, Mesut is very successful in his performances," he added. "It's too early to talk right now. But you cannot know the conditions. Fenerbahce seem serious about Mesut."

Ozil, who signed for Arsenal in 2013 for a club-record fee of £42.5m, has flattered to deceive and often been criticised for not imposing himself on the opposition.

In July, he was quoted in Sabah, another Turkish newspaper, saying: "In the future I want to wear a Fenerbahce shirt. It would be an honour. Everyone knows I am a Fenerbahce fan."

Ozil has made 78 appearances for the Gunners since joining, scoring 12 goals.
