Arsenal are preparing a £10million bid for former player Oguzhan Ozyakup, in attempt to lure him back to the club.
The Turkey international left the Gunners for just £400,000 back in 2012 to join Besiktas, where he impressed – making over 150 appearaces for the Super Lig champions.
And, according to reports in Turkey, Arsenal are keen to bring the 25-year-old back to the Emirates Stadium.
Ozyakup has scored 27 goals and claimed 43 assists for the Turkish side, and his form over the last few seasons has led to interest from a number of top clubs from around Europe.
The attacking midfielder can adopt a similar position to Gunners playmaker Mesut Ozil and with the German future still up in the air, Ozyakup could be drafted in as a direct replacement.
