Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil has fueled speculation about which club he might leave following a recent post on social media.
The German international has been excluded from the Gunners roster this season.
In fact, the 32-year-old hasn’t played a single minute for Mikel Arteta since March.
His contract expires this season, which means he could walk away for nothing after coming in for £ 42 million in 2013.
As a result, mirror reports that Arsenal are looking to dump him for a fee this month.
Now, the source suggests that his recent Instagram post could indicate where he’s going.
On Tuesday, the playmaker posted a photo of Istanbul, captioning the post: “This city … #Istanbul #reverse.”
Mirror argues that a change to Fenerbahce, who resides in the Turkish capital, has been in the cards and this post only reinforces this speculation.
Earlier Tuesday, Turkish journalist Berkay Tokgoz tweeted that he thought a transfer to Fenerbahce was on the horizon.
He wrote: “The bomb of the year explodes. Mesut Ozil will join Fenerbahce. He will be wearing jersey number 23 “.
Ozil is not currently training with the first team having been was left out of the club’s Premier League and Europa League rosters.
The World Cup winner has won three FA Cups with the Gunners during his seven-year tenure.

Rival joins Arsenal in race for Eriksen
Everton have declared their interest in Arsenal goal Christian Eriksen.
The former Spurs player is set to leave Inter Milan after falling out of favor with coach Antonio Conte.
Arsenal have been strongly linked to a movement for the playmaker, while the wolves have also put their name on the hat.
The Dane will be leaving Italy this month, either on loan or on a permanent contract.
His £ 120,000 a week salary may indicate that the former will be more likely given the financial pressures clubs face amid Covid-19.
