The Turkish star has been on the Gunners’ radar for several seasons having played for the club as a schoolboy
Arsenal reportedly sent a scout to watch top transfer target Oguzhan Ozyakup – but the midfielder did not play for Besiktas against Bayern Munich.
The Turkish star has been on the Gunners’ radar for several seasons having played for the club as a schoolboy.
Indeed, Ozyaup won the FA Youth Cup in 2009 while playing alongside current Arsenal star Jack Wilshere in midfield.
The 25-year-old has been a key part of the Besiktas side this term but was not needed against Bayern.
The visitors were thrashed 5-0 by Bayern as Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller each bagged a brace to all but send the Germans into the Champions League quarter-finals.
