Fenerbahce are 1/2 to finally secure the 32-year-old's signature having tried and failed on several occasions.
The bookies have no other competitors to challenge the Istanbul heavyweights but they do offer one more scenario.
And that's that Ozil stays put to collect his £350,000-a-week wages and leaves the club on a free transfer in the summer.
The former Germany international has previously vowed to serve out the entirety of his contract.

He told The Athletic in August: "Things have been difficult but I love Arsenal. I'll decide when I go, not other people.
"I'll give everything I have for this club. I showed in the past that I can come back into the team and I will show it again."
However, Ozil has not managed to force his way back into manager Mikel Arteta's plans since giving that interview.
He's not played for Arsenal since March 7 and has not been included in their Premier League or Europa League squads.

Murat Zorlu, a member of Fenerbahce's congress, has fuelled speculation that Ozil will be on the move in January.
He revealed that the German World Cup winner will sign for the club during the upcoming transfer window.
Zorlu told Sport Digitale: "A source, who’s very well connected to the club, has told me that Mesut Ozil is likely to become a Fenerbahce player during the next transfer window.
"I would say 90% he will join us in one month."
Betfair Spokesperson, Sam Rosbottom said: "After another defeat without scoring a goal, Arsenal are crying out for some creativity.
"But with the amount of controversy surrounding his time at the club, it looks as though creative midfielder, Mesut Ozil won't be the answer and he is odds-on at 1/2 to move to Fenerbahce. He is 6/4 to stay at the club."
