’s plans since March, despite being fit and ready.

Ozil held a Q&A on Twitter on Monday and he answered lots of questions one of which was that he did not regret joining Arsenal.

“I definitely will,” he answered when he was asked whether he would continue playing after leaving Arsenal. “There are two countries I want to play football in before I retire: Turkey and USA.

“If I went to Turkey, I could only go to Fenerbahce.”

Fenerbahce have been linked with a move for Ozil and it seems there is even the possibility of him moving in January.

“I grew up as a Fenerbahce fan as a kid in Germany,” he said. “Every German-Turkish person supports a Turkish team when they grow up in Germany. And mine was Fenerbahce. 

“Fenerbahce is like Real Madrid in Spain. The biggest club in the country.”
