Fenerbahce have set a date for Mesut Ozil to complete his move from Arsenal, with club president Ali Koc expecting the relevant paperwork to be signed off on Tuesday.
The World Cup winner has had to take in a quarantine period after leaving England, as dictated by coronavirus protocols, meaning that he has been prevented from linking up with new employers.
Koc is confident that a high-profile transfer will be wrapped up in a matter of days after fending off rival interest in the 32-year-old.
He has said at Fener’s Council of the Board meeting: “Other clubs wanted [him] but Mesut Ozil's heart was in our hands.
“Mesut has no injuries.
“There was a quarantine period. After that, the signatures will take place.
“We are waiting for Mesut Ozil's first training session tomorrow [Sunday] night. We will not decide when to play him, the coach will decide.
“If everything goes well, we are planning the signature day on Tuesday.”
