MESUT OZIL looks set to finally end his Arsenal turmoil with Fenerbahce the standout favourites to secure his signature.
That's according to bookmakers Betfair, who have emphatically slashed their odds on Ozil joining the Turkish heavyweights in January.

The 32-year-old was priced at 11/4 to join Fenerbahce towards the end of December, but is now firmly odds on at 1/9.
The shift in odds is linked to Turkish broadcaster NTVSpo's claims that a three-and-a-half-year deal has been agreed between the two parties.
However, the market remains open and active and that suggests everything is not done and dusted.
Ozil to join any MLS club is 12/1 with Betfair.
And those odds could soon be cut after claims from Sky Sports that Ozil's representatives is also speaking with DC United.
Besiktas and Galatasaray priced at 25/1 and 40/1 respectively, while Italian giants AC Milan are also 40/1 with Inter Milan the outsiders of the bunch at 50s.

The German playmaker had previously vowed to serve the remainder of his contract in north London.
But those plans appear to have changed with the player's agent, Dr Erkut Sogut, confirming discussions with several clubs.
He told ESPN: "I can't talk about the clubs directly because it would be unprofessional but generally, there is six months left on the contract and it is nothing unusual that we will talk to people about different opportunities and try to find the best option for Mesut.
"He might stay at Arsenal until the summer but he might go. Mesut's priority is to stay but you never know in football, things can change very fast. For the moment, we are just checking all the options for January and the summer.
"If we want to leave in January, I need to talk to Arsenal. If we sign for the summer, we don't need to. That's the situation. In the next seven to ten days, it will be a little clearer as now the transfer window is open, things can move faster."
