Mesut Ozil transfer update: Arsene Wenger forced to address Besiktas ‘enquiry’ speculation

Reports on Wednesday night claimed that Besiktas had made an enquiry over the availability of Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil, and Arsene Wenger, the Gunners manager, has inevitably been forced to address the speculation.

Erol Kaynar, former Besiktas board member, claims that Erdan Torunogullari, the Turkish club’s transfer chief, met with the representative of the Germany international last week – report.

“Erdal [Torunogullari] met with Mesut Ozil’s representatives last week and made an enquiry,” said Kaynar.

In his Friday press-conference ahead of their clash with Liverpool on Monday night, Ozil’s future this summer was unsurprisingly a hot topic for Wenger.

And the Frenchman has insisted that Ozil will remain in north London this summer, and is not interested in the rumours concerning his record signing’s future.

Arsenal are currently preparing for Monday’s night clash with the Reds, and Wenger has also confirmed that there are no new injury concerns following their victory over Crystal Palace last Sunday.
