Ozil also said that he grew up as a Fenerbahce fan when he was a kid in Germany.
The ex-Germany international was left out of Arsenal’s Premier League and Europa League squads.
Ozil was initially expected to join Fenerbahce on loan for the rest of the season.
“I grew up as a @Fenerbahce fan as a kid in Germany – every German-Turkish person supports a Turkish team when they grow up in Germany.
“And mine was Fenerbahce. Fenerbahce is like Real Madrid in Spain. The biggest club in the country,” Ozil wrote on Twitter when asked why he has liked Fenerbahçe since he was young and what is the main thing that makes him a Fenerbahce fan.
