His last professional goal dates back to February 2020 coming when Arsenal thrashed Newcastle 4-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

During his time in England, the Germain star made the headlines due to his creative skills. But on the flip side, he occasionally received subtle social media shots and behind the scenes fall-outs.

Surprisingly the Gunners failed to register him for their 25-man Premier League squad at the beginning of the 2020/21 season, prompting the playmaker to imply a lack of loyalty on Arsenal's behalf via social media.

Though Ozil's move to Fenerbahce was originally greeted with optimism from the player himself and fans alike, it quickly turned into something of a nightmare.

Ozil's decision to acquire shares in Mexican club Necaxa hits a snag

On the other hand, Mesut Ozil plan to acquire Mexican Club Necaxa is facing some challenges .

The German midfielder and his investment partners plan to sell part of their stake in the Mexican Club through a digital token but was blocked by the Mexican Football Federation.

The Mexican Football Federation argued that the scheme was likely not allowed under its current rules and defies the guideline that league approval is needed for any sale of a financial stake in a club, no matter how small.

"In accordance with our regulations, the membership certificates [of ownership] may not be transferred or modified under any figure other than the express approval of the Assembly of the MX LIGA and confirmation of the Executive Committee and/or the General Assembly of the Mexican Football Federation," wrote the governing body in a statement posted to its official website.
