According to reports in Turkey via Football London, Oguzhan Ozyakup is edging closer to rejoining Arsenal on a lucrative contract after holding talks with Arsene Wenger.

Ozyakup joined Arsenal’s youth academy in 2008 and progressed through the system before making his first team debut against Shrewsbury Town in the League Cup back in 2011.

However, the youngster failed to establish himself as part of Wenger’s plans as he only managed two cup appearances before being sold to Besiktas for €500,000 in 2012.

The 25-year-old has flourished in Turkey as Ozyakup has played over 200 times to help Besiktas win two Super Lig titles while he’s also represented Turkey 30 times at international level.

Arsenal could lose Jack Wilshere this summer as the England international has refused to put pen to paper with Arsene Wenger looking for a replacement for him should he fail to sign a new deal.

Football London are citing a report from Turkish outlet Aksam that claims Arsenal have put forward a lucrative contract offer and the midfielder has had his head turned by the prospect of moving back to north London.
