In the middle of the chaos that the football world is sitting in at the moment, there have been fragments that have been providing hope to other clubs who are more focused on building their teams with the resources that are up for grabs unlike chasing the stars.
Going by the words of one of Arsenal’s preceding stars, Mesut Ozil, his current club, Fenerbahce have started inquiring about the availability of Arsenal’s Sead Kolasinac.
Ozil played eight staggering seasons for Arsenal that saw him featuring in 184 Premier League appearances, smashing 33 strikes and stringing 54 assists. He managed to secure 100 victories and was a part of 39 defeats.
Going by the words of @yagosabuncuoglu, it was Ozil who provided the reference for Kolasinac and Fenerbahce has managed to open up the talks of getting the Tank in their ranks.

In an infamous incident, Kolasinac saved Ozil’s life in a burglary incident. The Tank’s timely intervention averted any kind of mishap despite triggering severe duress for the German star.
Arsenal is also in the middle of the doldrums as well with results not going in their favour for a while now. Arteta will need to plug a lot of leaks in order for the trophies to flow in again.
Arsenal’s current hopes
They will be relying heavily on the likes of Bernd Leno, Hector Bellerin, Pablo Mari and Bukayo Saka to deliver for them in the upcoming season.
They haven’t had a good start to the friendlies that usually flag the oncoming of the season. They have been humbled by the likes of Hibernian and Arsenal while drawing with Rangers.
Arteta will have his task cut out when the Gunners collide with Spurs on the upcoming Sunday in another friendly clash. They will be starting their Premier League campaign on 14th August against newly promoted, Brentford.
