Pindah ke Liga Turki, Oezil Dapat Dukungan Wenger

Wenger felt a strong connection between Mesut Oezil and Turkey.

JAKARTA - Former Arsenal coach Arsene Wengerm praises the talent of Mesut Oezildan to provide support to his former favorite player who confirmed his move from the London club. Oezil has not been included in the plans of the Gunners team architect, Mikel Arteta, since the Spaniard's arrival in the middle of last season.

Oezil was unable to reach a financial agreement with Arsenal to keep him from leaving. Oezil then chose to join Fenerbahce in Turkey.

"First of all I would like to say the club is happy to announce such a transfer in a period where you will not have many transfers," Wenger told BeIN Sports Turkey as reported by Tribalfootball . "And he will definitely be the biggest transfer in the January transfer window because the world of football is rather quiet."

But overall, continued Wenger, it's fantastic news for Fenerbahce who are in a strong position in the Turkish League. "I think he can be part of the puzzle which will make them more of a threat to win the Turkish League," he explained.

Wenger continued, he had never spoken to Oezil about Fenerbahce before because he wanted to keep Oezil at Arsenal.

"But I can always feel Turkey's strong relationship because I met family, I met the agent, I met his father when I signed him," said Wenger. "You can see that there is a strong bond between Oezil and Turkey and a great interest in the Turkish League."
