According to Sport, the playmaker, whose contract is due to expire this summer, is close to signing for the Turkish side. However, Erol Bulut refused to confirm the rumors.

Ozil

has long been away from

Arsenal’s

first-team squad and reportedly has agreed to sign a three-and-a-half-year contract with the Super Lig side.

Although the 45-year-old manager refused to confirm the rumors, he admitted the situation will be resolved imminently.

"Mesut Ozil's situation will become clear in the coming days,"

he told Bein Sports in

Fenerbahce's

2-1 win against

Alanyaspor’s

post-match interview on Thursday.

"Mesut’s name is very common. It is not possible for me to make a comment before he comes."

The 32-year-old’s agent,

Dr. Erkut Sogut

, revealed the former

Real Madrid

midfielder’s future will be resolved in the coming days as clubs from the United States, Turkey, and Qatar are reportedly interested in signing him.

"We were not allowed to talk legally before Jan 1 so now we are just starting to look at the options with the numbers and details,"

Sogut said.

"He might stay at Arsenal until the summer but he might go. Mesut's priority is to stay but you never know in football, things can change very fast. For the moment, we are just checking all the options for January and the summer.

"If we want to leave in January, I need to talk to Arsenal. If we sign for the summer, we don't need to. That's the situation. In the next seven to ten days, it will be a little clearer as now the transfer window is open, things can move faster."

Despite being out of picking orders,

Mikel Arteta

insisted on Thursday that

Ozil

will remain at the club if they do not receive a good offer for him this month.

"If something is sorted this month it is because it is good for both parties - for Mesut and his future and good for the club,"

the Spaniard said.

"If that is the case we will move forward, if it is not the case then he will continue here."
