Confirmed: Özil departs Arsenal, joins Fenerbahce

Mesut Özil has ended his turbulent time at Arsenal and joined Turkish club Fenerbahce, ending weeks of speculation and social media teasing.

Özil joined Arsenal from Real Madrid in 2013 under Arsene Wenger and played over 250 appearances for the club scoring 44 goals and 71 assists.

He has not played for Arsenal since March 2020 and was left out of this season’s squad for all competitions, a situation described by Arteta as a footballing reason and several insider sources have noted otherwise.

Mesut said: “I’d like to thank the club for this amazing journey over the past seven-and-a-half years,” Özil said in his farewell speech to Arsenal.

“The support I have felt from the team and fans during my time here has been truly incredible and something I will always be grateful for. Together we won trophies for the first time in years and created memories that will last a lifetime.

“The Arsenal fans will forever remain in my heart. I’d like to thank Edu Gaspar for helping bring about a professional and dignified solution in the past few days, and I wish everyone at the club the best in their attempt to continue to bring Arsenal back to the top, where we belong.”

Özil won three FA Cups in a row with the North London club.
