Arsenal could be set for a sizeable sell-on fee if Besiktas sell midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup for his reported asking price. The Turkish club’s president Fikret Orman has set a price tag of €20m for the midfielder, according to Bursadabugun.

Ozyakup joined Beskitas from the Gunners in 2012 for just €500,000 but the London club included a clause in the player’s contract which meant 30% of his next sale would go to them.

If the midfielder is sold close to his asking price, Arsenal would get €6m or roughly £5.3m; a substantial profit on what they sold the player for just five years ago.

Besiktas officials reportedly travelled to England in the summer to discuss removing the sell-on clause. A reported €1m was offered for the Gunners to waive their share of any future transfer fee, but it seems that the proposal was refused, and the club remain set for a windfall when Ozyakup is eventually sold.
