Mesut Ozil is ready to end to his Arsenal nightmare and complete a transfer to Fenerbahce, according to reports from Turkey.
Ozil, 32, is ready to put pen to paper on a three-year deal with the Turkish club, after turning down an approach from MLS outfit DC United.
Turkish broadcaster NTVSpo claims the deal has been agreed, after Ozil was exiled in north London under Mikel Arteta.
The World Cup winner with Germany leaves Arsenal after eight years in north London, in which he won the FA Cup four times.
He was a key figure under Arsene Wenger but fell down the pecking order when Unai Emery arrived at the Emirates.

Arteta promised to build his Arsenal team around the German when he took the reins in 2018, but Ozil has been deemed surplus to requirements this season.
The German was left out of Arteta's Premier League and Europa League teams this season, and hasn't kicked a ball for the Gunners since March.
Arsenal's poor form and technical director Edu's admission that the Gunners are missing a creative mind provided Ozil with hope that he may be reinstated to the first team in January.
But the recent emergence of Emile Smith Rowe means Arteta has no plans to U-turn on his original decision, meaning Ozil is facing missing the rest of the season.
Ozil was on Tuesday night linked with a move to MLS outfit DC United.
According to football.london, the German has been in talks with the Washington-based club about a January switch.
The MLS side reportedly offered Ozil an 'attractive' package, which would enable him to expand his M10 brand as well as his Steps Coffee business in their Audi Field stadium.
