Fenerbahce president Ali Koc has reportedly asked supporters to donate money to the club in order to help pay Mesut Ozil's wages.
The German midfielder completed his move to the Turkish Super Lig outfit on Sunday after signing a three-and-a-half-year contract.
It has been claimed that Ozil will now be earning £67 000 (R1.3 million) a week in Turkey, which is significantly less than what he was earning at Arsenal.
However, Fenerbahce president Koc has stated that the club will rely on donations from supporters via an SMS campaign to help finance the player's wages.
"We have a request for our fans. Please continue to support us, we are also dependent on your financial support," he said, according to The Sun.
"On the day of the signature, I will ask you to break a record. With an SMS campaign.
"Maybe 300 000, 500 000 or maybe even a million text messages come together. This support will do us very good."
After training with the team on Sunday, Ozil could be in line to make his Fenerbahce debut against Kayserispor on Monday evening.
