Championship side Hull City are keen on signing Mesut Ozil from Fenerbahce, according to reports.
The Super Lig giants officially suspended the German from their playing squad in March.
Football.london reported that the club suspended both Ozil and team-mate Ozan Tufan after a verbal altercation with manager Ismail Kartal. The disagreement revolved around their lack of playing time.
Turkish broadcaster Volkan initially suggested that the midfielder had gone on strike due to a wage dispute. However, the club denied this claim.
Diario AS report that the Turkish club are looking to terminate the contract of one of their star players. With Ozil now set to move on, he will need to find a new club quickly.
Hull City keen on Mesut Ozil
AS claims that Ozil has always been keen on moving to the United States, and he may now get his wish. David Beckham reportedly wants to bring the gifted midfielder to Inter Miami. The newly-founded club has already concluded some big deals in its short history. Bringing Ozil into a line-up that includes Gonzalo Higuaín and Blaise Matuidi would benefit them further.
However, Turkish press reports that Hull City are keen on signing Ozil. Due to his friendship with their new Turkish owner, Acun Ilicali, they could get the deal over the line.
In his prime, the German’s performances earned him a place among the greatest midfielders on the planet. The footballer’s quick and agile footwork, combined with supreme technical skills, allowed him to tear teams apart with his ability to open teams up by picking the perfect passes.
He blew away spectators at Real Madrid and Arsenal with his awe-inspiring showings. There’s no denying that the MKM Stadium is worlds apart from where he has played in the past. But the new owner is clearly ambitious, and Ozil could be the man to help the Tigers back to the Premier League.
