Arsenal are reportedly looking to sell German midfielder Mesut Ozil to a club in the Turkish Super Lig in order to raise much-needed funds.
The Gunners are said to have been in contact with Fenerbahce, Istanbul Basaksehir and Galatasaray to see if they would like to sign the playmaker.
Arsenal are willing to pay a portion of his wages for the first two seasons in Turkey.
Manager Unai Emery is desperate to free up funds after being granted a transfer budget of just £45m to work with ahead of the 2019/20 season.
The London based English Premier League
giants attempted to offer Ozil to Inter Milan, Napoli and Juventus in January, but to no avail.
None of the Serie sides were willing to match either Arsenal's £27m valuation of the star or wish to pay his high salary demands.
