Mesut Ozil has revealed he plans to play his football in Turkey or the United States when he finally leaves the Premier League club.

The German has not played for Mikel Arteta's side since March last year and has just six months left on his contract at the Emirates.

The 32-year-old World Cup winner was asked if he would continue his career when he left Arsenal, whom he joined in 2013.

"I definitely will," he replied. "There are two countries I want to play football in before I retire: Turkey and USA. If I went to Turkey, I could only go to Fenerbahce."

Ozil, the highest-paid player in Arsenal's history, said he was a Fenerbahce fan when growing up in Germany.

"Every German-Turkish person supports a Turkish team when they grow up in Germany," he said. "And mine was Fenerbahce. Fenerbahce is like Real Madrid in Spain. The biggest club in the country."

"There have been many ups and downs so far, but all in all I've never regretted my decision to join Arsenal," Ozil insisted.

"I've enjoyed that time a lot and I've thought we're really on a very positive way," he added. "But after the break things unfortunately changed."
