Arsenal 'Are Still Paying 90%' Of Mesut Ozil's Massive Weekly Wage At Fenerbahce

Arsenal are reportedly still paying 90% of Mesut Ozil's massive £350,000-per-week wages - despite him now playing for Turkish side Fenerbahce.

He opted to sign with boyhood side Fenerbahce on reduced terms, as his Gunners deal was set to expire this summer.

The Athletic have now reported Arsenal are paying a large sum of Ozil's wages until June, when his contract officially expires.

A stumbling block in negotiations with Fenerbahce were said to be financial.

Fener are paying £46,000-per-week of Ozil's wages but it hasn't gone to plan so far.

He's played seven games since arriving in Turkey and is yet to score or provide an assist, while also suffering from injury issues.

Arsenal are currently tenth in the Premier League and have replaced Ozil with loanee Martin Odegaard and academy graduate Emile Smith Rowe.

Odegaard is on a season-long loan from Real Madrid and Smith Rowe is now in line for a new contract after a number of standout performances.

Arsenal lost their last game 1-0 to Everton and it was their sixth defeat at the Emirates in the league this season.

The home side thought they had a penalty after Dani Ceballos was tripped by Richarlison in the second half.

Protests against owner Stan Kroenke took place prior to kick-off and Spotify founder Daniel Ek dropped a bombshell during the action.

A lifelong fan, Ek stated he'd be open to buying the club if Kroenke was interested in selling.
