Ozil also said that he grew up as a Fenerbahce fan when he was a kid in Germany.
The 32-year-old is very close to moving to Fenerbahce this January transfer window after the door was closed to a return to Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta’s first team at Emirates.
The ex-Germany international was left out of Arsenal’s Premier League and Europa League squads.
Ozil was initially expected to join Fenerbahce on loan for the rest of the season.
That move would have seen Arsenal paying his £350,000-a-week wages before his contract expires at the end of this season, and then he would make the move permanent.
“I grew up as a @Fenerbahce fan as a kid in Germany – every German-Turkish person supports a Turkish team when they grow up in Germany.
“And mine was Fenerbahce. Fenerbahce is like Real Madrid in Spain. The biggest club in the country,” Ozil wrote on Twitter when asked why he has liked Fenerbahçe since he was young and what is the main thing that makes him a Fenerbahce fan.
