Arsenal star playmaker Mesut Ozil could be allowed to leave the Emirates on loan in January according to the Times.

Per the source, Ozil has fallen out of favor with head coach Unai Emery and could be allowed to leave on a temporary move.

The playmaker of Turkish origin signed a contract extension with the Gunners last January making him the most highly paid player in the squad earning £350,000 per-week.


The 30-year-old was left out of Wednesday’s Carabao Cup loss to Tottenham, with Emery describing his decision as being purely ‘tactical’.

The North London based outfit fear that they would not be able to get credible offers or find a club willing to pay his wages if they try to sell him on a permanent deal.

The article also focuses on Fenerbahce who did make offers in the lead up to his contract deal but claim they could now be ‘indifferent’ towards a move.

The Yellow Canaries would most definitely be very keen on adding Ozil to their ranks considering they are 17th in the Super Lig table.

The club are under pressure from Financial Fair Play to curb spending. The only way a loan move could go ahead is if Arsenal were to cover part of his wages.

As things stand a loan move to Fenerbahce would be very unlikely.
