And a reunion with Cristiano Ronaldo could well be a tempting prospect for Ozil, who once described his former Real Madrid colleague as one of the 'greatest footballers' who’s ever lived.
Ozil told Arsenal's official website back in 2018: "Another thing people always ask me about is what it was like to play with Cristiano Ronaldo and all I can say is that I’ve never seen a person like him.
"I really enjoyed playing with him because he made me better on the pitch and he’s a great guy off it, too. I gave him loads of assists and he doesn’t need me to remind him of that!
"It was easy to play with him because you didn’t need to create a lot of chances. Even if I just gave him two passes, he would score two goals and that’s why he’s one of the greatest footballers who’s ever lived."
Betfair Spokesperson, Sam Rosbottom said: "Despite Arsenal's need for an attacking midfielder to give the team more threat going forward, Mesut Ozil still can't get a game at the Emirates, and his time at the club looks all but done for.
"Looking at where he could go to next, Fenerbahce are the favourites in the betting market at 11/10 to sign him, while any MLS club to be his next destination is 7/2.
"A stay in the Premier League looks unlikely, with West Ham 16/1 and Manchester United 20/1 to be the midfielder's next club."
