The playmaker joins the Yellow-Navy Blues on a free transfer from Arsenal.
Despite being the highest-paid Arsenal player earning £350,000-a-week and having six-months remaining on his contract he was left out of the squad this season.
Ozil had not played for the Gunners since March and head coach Mikel Arteta did not register him this season.
The playmaker is expected to undergo a medical and officially put pen to paper over the next few days.
Ozil will not be registered in time for the Yellow Canaries clash against Ankaragucu tonight but could make his debut next week against Sivasspor.
