Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil is now a Fenerbahce player after signing to the club on a three-and-half-year deal on Sunday.
The Germany World Cup winner joined Arsenal from Real Madrid for a record £42.4m in 2013.
He won three FA Cups with the Gunners and scored 44 goals in 254 appearances in all competitions.
But the 32-year-old was dumped out of the squad by Arteta for this season’s Premier and Europa league’s has not played for the first team since March 2020.
“It is difficult for me to put into words the love I feel for the club and the fans,” Ozil said in an open letter.
“How could I possibly describe eight years of gratitude in a single letter?
“I will be a Gunner for life – no doubt about that.”
