And Ozil tweeted the number 67 alongside a heart emoji on Sunday as he prepares to move to the club he supported as a boy.

Ozil’s family hails from the Turkish province of Zonguldak, which has a postal code starting with 67.

Ozil is expected to wear 67 on his shirt until the end of the season, when he will switch to his favoured No10 jersey.

The No10 shirt at Fenerbahce is currently worn by on-loan Aston Villa striker Mbwana Samatta.

Ozil also had to bide his time to wear his favourite shirt number at Arsenal, taking over the No10 shirt from the outgoing Jack Wilshere in 2018.

The Athletic revealed on Saturday that Arsenal and Ozil had reached an agreement in principle to terminate the 32-year-old’s contract at the Emirates, which was due to expire in June.

The termination comes despite Ozil being due around £7m in wages between now and the end of the season, although the two parties are believed to have arrived at a compromise.

The 2014 World Cup winner was left out of Mikel Arteta’s Premier League and Europa League squads at the start of the season.

He has not appeared in any competition for the Gunners since March.

Ozil travelled to Arsenal’s London Colney training ground to say goodbye to his teammates earlier today.
