Mesut Ozil has said goodbye to his Arsenal teammates at the club’s London Colney training ground ahead of his move to Fenerbahce, talkSPORT understands.
The German rejected a lucrative move to MLS side DC United after being offered a three-and-a-half-year deal by the Turkish side, who he supported as a boy.

He will now travel to Turkey ahead of a medical, with the formalities expected in the coming days.
The 32-year-old has not featured for the Gunners since last March and manager Mikel Arteta left him out of his 25-man squad for the Premier League and the Europa League this season.
Ozil was due to collect more than £7million in wages before his £350,000-a-week deal expired in June – and it is understood the German wanted every penny.
Arsenal, desperate for a conclusion to the saga, finally agreed a pay-off so Ozil can leave as a free agent this month, rather than see out the remainder of his contract on the sidelines.

Earlier on Sunday he tweeted the number 67 in emojis, suggesting that’s the jersey he’ll wear with the Turkish side.

The German splits opinion, from those who consider him a victim of the whole saga to those who see him as more of a mercenary.
Martin Keown, the former defender who made 449 appearances for Arsenal, was one of the first to suggest the latter, but he has never doubted Ozil’s mercurial talent.
“It hurts me that a player of that talent can’t get on the football pitch, it’s a crying shame,” Keown told White and Jordan on talkSPORT.

“For me, he doesn’t go down as a legend, because he doesn’t match the energy and determination of legends that I’ve seen at that football club.
“If he had Tierney’s determination, coupled with that ability, he might’ve gone down as the best player ever to play for Arsenal.”
