Arsenal are set to spend £11million and waive their sell-on clause to land ex-academy player Oguzhan Ozyakup.

The midfielder came through the ranks at the North Londoners after signing schoolboy forms back in 2008.

However, the 25-year-old ended up leaving for Besiktas in 2012 after failing to make the grade and has since renewed his career in Turkey.

Arsenal have been pleasantly impressed by Ozyakup’s development, and now, as reported by Aksam, they are eager to bring him back to London.

Arsene Wenger’s side are also prepared to cancel the 30 per cent sell-on clause they were due to the bank if Besiktas sold Ozyakup.

It would mean that basically, an £11m offer from Arsenal would only set them back £7.7m.

However, by agreeing to surrender their right to a 30 per cent sell-on clause, the North Londoners would now pay the £11m in full.
