Besiktas midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup could be set for a return to Arsenal, six years after leaving the north London club without ever making a single first-team appearance in the Premier League.

Former Arsenal academy graduate who won successive Premier Academy League titles in 2008/09 and 2009/10 and lifted the FA Youth Cup of 2008/09 moved to Turkey in 2012 and went on to establish himself as a valuable first-team member with Besiktas.

As a full Turkey international and one of the key players for his side, Ozyakup is heading into the final six months of his deal with Besiktas and is free to open talks with interested parties ahead of the summer move.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger offloaded the Turkish midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup back in 2012 without ever giving him a proper chance to prove himself with the first team.

The 25-year-old Turkey international born in Netherlands started his career with AZ in 2005 before moving to London three years later.

Ozyakup spent four years with Arsenal as a youth prospect but Arsene Wenger opted against including him in the first team and sold him to Besiktas for mere £400,000 in 2012.

Turkish daily newspaper Milliyet has suggested that Arsenal are hot on the trail of Besiktas youngster Oguzhan Ozyakup, who has been in stunning form this season.

It was at the Emirates that the 23-year-old began his professional career having joined from AZ Alkmaar, but he only made two League Cup appearances before the Turkish giants secured his signature in a €500,000 deal back in June 2012.

That proved to be a bad decision by the Arsenal management as Ozyakup quickly went on to prove his undoubted potential, developing into a key member of the squad at Besiktas.

According to reports from the Daily Telegraph, Arsenal are looking to bring Turkish midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup back to north London from Besiktas.

Turkish publication Fanatik are claiming that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger believes he has made a mistake in selling Ozyakup in 2012. The Dutch-born 23-year-old spent four years at Arsenal before being sold to the Turkish side.

He has impressed in the Turkish top-flight and been linked with a move to a number of clubs, but the Gunners are regarded as favourites to sign him. The side from north London are seemingly in need of making additions to their central midfield options.

According to the Daily Express and the Turkish Media, Arsenal are scouting former midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup, who is currently plying his trade with Besiktas in Turkey.

The 23-year-old has impressed with the Turkish side since joining from joining back in 2012. Ozyakup joined the Gunners youth ranks in 2008 from Dutch club AZ Alkmaar and big things were expected of the young midfielder.

However, he made just two appearances for the north London club, which both came in the 2011/12 season in the league cup. He cost Besiktas just £500,000, but is now rated in the £7million bracket by his current employer.
