Arsenal are sure to be in the market for midfield additions this summer, as the Gunners are poised to lose both Santi Cazorla and Jack Wilshere as things stand.

Whilst the Bosman ruling may be a thorn in the side of the north London outfit in that scenario, Arsenal could use it to their advantage on the continent in order to bring Turkish international Oguzhan Ozyakup back to the Emirates Stadium.

Besiktas are desperate to extend Ozyakup’s contract ahead of it’s expiry this summer but Turkish outlet Haberturk report that their current priority is removing the sell-on clause that Arsenal hold on the player.

Arsenal will be owed 30% of any fee Besiktas receive for the player and, after the Gunners rejected a €1.5m offer to remove that clause, further talks are set to be held between the two sides as they aim to find level ground.

Arsene Wenger’s side were reportedly in the hunt for Ozyakup last summer, seeing a €7m bid rejected, and are said to remain interested.
