Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil continues to be linked with a move to Fenerbahce in the Turkish press.

TRT Spor and Sabah journalist Fatih Dogan claimed that the Yellow Canaries are weighing up a deal to bring Ozil away from the Emirates on loan.

The reporter said that the chances of Ozil joining are 50-51 percent positive.

Dogan reckons Ozil is even money, or just over, to join the Turkish club he has supported since childhood.

He said: “Fenerbahce president Ali Koc is working very hard to sign him.

“For his wages and loan fee, the club are trying to find the sponsors. They are working on it.

“I think it’s going very well. Right now, I can say the possibility is 50-51% positive.”

Turkish-Football reported last month that a transfer to Fenerbahce is not feasible.

A source close to the Yellow-Navy Blues revealed to Turkish-Football for the second time that nothing has changed and that it is simply not possible to sign the playmaker this summer.

Additionally, both the players agent Dr Erkut Sogut and Ozil have made it clear that he is staying at Arsenal.

“Rumours will always persist, there is no doubt about that. But one thing I can guarantee is Mesut’s loyalty. His mind is focused on Arsenal, and Arsenal only. Mesut bleeds Arsenal red, and respecting his contract is a certainty. He’ll be staying at Arsenal until at least 2021, and the fans need not to worry about the gossip that may come this summer,” Sogut told Turkish-Football.

Ozil is currently on holiday with his wife Amine Gulse in Turkey and will be returning to Arsenal for pre-season.
