Fenerbahce president Ali Koc claims that a deal for Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil is edging closer, with the playmaker looking set to leave North London this month.

Fenerbahce president Ali Koc has hinted that the Turkish giants could soon wrap up a deal for Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil.

The ex-Germany international has previously stated that he would see out the remainder of his Emirates contract, but an exit in the January window now appears to be the most likely outcome.

Despite reported interest from DC United, Fenerbahce are regarded as the favourites to secure Ozil's services, and Koc has now revealed that a deal is edging closer to completion.

Speaking to Canal+, Koc said: "Let me tell you the latest on Mesut Ozil. We've said it would be a dream for Fenerbahce. The club knows what the coach wants and our transfer policy is guided by that. There hasn't been an official announcement.

"What I can say is we are closer than before. There may be a resolution, there may not be a resolution. Fenerbahce SK will make the announcement when the time comes."

Ozil was eligible to play against Newcastle United in the FA Cup, but he was not selected by Mikel Arteta and looks set to leave Arsenal having amassed 44 goals and 77 assists in 254 appearances.
