have sent scouts to watch a central midfielder on the continent yet again, although they haven’t had much luck.

Turkish Football report that the Gunners sent representatives to watch the Istanbul derby between and Fenerbache, with the side tracking Turkish midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup once again.

The former man has earned a strong reputation with his performances for and the Gunners are exploring the option of bringing him back to the Premier League. However, they haven’t had much luck.

scouts were first said to be in attendance for the recent tie between and Bayern Munich, where the Turkish side were comfortably beaten and Ozyakup didn’t feature, and he was out of the team once again this weekend.

came from behind to win 3-1, with Ricardo Qauresma being the star of the show, but Ozyakup picked up a stomach bug ahead of kick-off that ruled him out of the game.

are likely to continue their scouting mission for Ozyakup though and could make a move at the end of the season.
