Fenerbahce have insisted they will not be making any move to sign Mesut Ozil this summer because the Arsenal star is too expensive.

The Turkish giants have repeatedly been linked with Ozil amid reports Arsenal are keen to offload the playmaker.

But Fenerbahce have now moved to downplay reports of an impending offer, conceding they don’t have the funds to sign Ozil.

A statement from the Super Lig side read: ‘Mesut Ozil, with his career and standing, successfully represents our country abroad.

‘He is an important value known with the identity of Fenerbahce.

‘However, Fenerbahce does not have a proposal for Mesut Ozil.

‘Under the current economic conditions, such a step is not possible for both parties.
