Mesut Ozil confirmed his move to Fenerbahce through a Twitter post indicating that the move is about to end.
It is understood that the midfielder has reached an agreement with Arsenal on the terms of termination of his £ 350,000 per week contract by mutual consent.
Sportsmail revealed earlier this month that the 32-year-old was in talks to cut his deal as Mikel Arteta continued to remove him from the first-team squad.

There was a post from the club indicating that it would be announced soon
Ozil has now hinted that he is heading towards joining his childhood club.
Fenerbahce posted a coded tweet on Saturday that translated into: “Come on, let’s be day and night.”
Ozil responded to the post with two heart-shaped emoticons in blue and yellow, matching the club’s colors, along with an hourglass symbol, indicating that the announcement will take place soon.

Earlier in the week, the midfielder spoke of his admiration for the club during a Q&A on Twitter.
He annoyed fans by saying, “ I grew up as a Fenerbahce fan when I was a kid in Germany – every German-Turk supports the Turkish team when they grow up in Germany.
And I had Fenerbahce. Fenerbahce is like Real Madrid in Spain. The largest club in the country.
According to reports in Turkey from AFC BellFenerbahçe president Ali Koc has a plane on standby and the midfielder will fly to Turkey as soon as he sorts his cards with Arsenal.
The outlet himself claimed that the club is planning to hold a party to advertise it, which will be broadcast live on television, radio and social media platforms.
The signature could be announced on Sunday, ending Ozil’s eight-year term in the UAE.

On Tuesday, Kog said progress had been made, and sporting director Emery added that the “dream” step was getting closer.
I look up very positive on behalf of the community and the President, but I don’t see it easily. “We have our own plans,” Emery told reporters.
Masoud also has a contract with his club. He is a star. We are talking about a player who scored a goal in every other match in every club he played with. I would be very happy if Fenerbahce could get such a player.
We met him and his manager. Masoud is closer than ever. The fact that Masoud had this childhood dream and Fenerbahce was dreaming of making this step very close for the first time.
Emery assured that if he signs Ozil, the contract will not disrupt the club’s current wage structure.
The 32-year-old has been frozen under Mikel Arteta and has not played for 10 months
He said: After the meeting with Masoud Club ends, we will hold meetings between us. If Masoud and his club agree to the terms we want, that will not expand our financial boundaries this year.
Mathematical claim Ozil was set to earn around £ 7 million at Emirates Stadium between now and the end of the current season, but an early termination has now been agreed.
Ozil has not been with Arsenal in over 10 months, and his last appearance was in the 1–0 win in March over West Ham when he helped Alexandre Lacazette.
