Arsenal are reported to be planning a bid in the region of £9.3 Million for Oğuzhan Özyakup, according to the Turkish press.
Özyakup, a former Arsenal academy player, currently plies his trade with Turkish giants Besiktas.
The chances are that Arsenal will have to wait until the end of the season to sign the 23 year old, as he is intent on helping his team win the Turkish title first.
The midfielder confirmed this when he said,
“Arda Turan has opened up the doors to Europe for Turkish footballers I want to follow in his footsteps,”
“However, first I want to win the Turkish Super Lig title with Besiktas.”
