Turkish giants Fenerbache have denied reports that they are set to make a move for Arsenal playmaker Mesut Ozil.
The Istanbul-based club have been linked with an ambitious loan move for the German, whose future in north London is uncertain after a string of subpar performances last season, including an invisible display in the Europa League final.
Fenerbache have refuted these rumours though, releasing a statement on their club website this morning.
