FORMER Arsenal star Mesut Ozil is reportedly looking to buy another club after purchasing a stake in Mexican side Nexaca last year.
Fenerbahe man Ozil is eager to purchase Turkish third division club Corum FK outright.
Ozil, 33, previously teamed up with stunning model Kate Upton and Hollywood A-lister Eva Longoria in 2021 to buy a stake in Nexaca.
But now the former Arsenal playmaker is eyeing a whole purchase of his own, according to Bild, after investing a 50 per cent stake in the three-times champions of Mexico.
Corum's previous owner Fatih Ozcan stepped down from his role at the club last week.
And he revealed in a departing press conference: "A world-famous player from Turkey is interested in buying the club."
That player is confirmed by Bild to be Ozil.
They go on to report that Corum captain Umut Kaya said: "The contact came through Irfan Can Kahveci, who plays with Özil at Fenerbahce and comes from Corum.

"He called Özcan and asked about the details."
The asking price for the ENTIRE club is 20 million Turkish Lira, which works out at just £1million.
With Ozil said to be earning £335,000-a-week at Fenerbahce, £1m to buy Corum FK is merely a drop in the ocean for the ex-Germany international.
He became Arsenal's record signing when they paid Real Madrid £42.5million for him in 2013.
Ozil made 254 appearances, scoring 44 goals, and helped the Gunners win three FA Cups.
And since swapping Arsenal for Fenerbahce in January 2021, he has played 31 times for the Istanbul-based side, scoring eight goals.
