Report: Arsenal interested in re-signing former player this summer

Arsenal are interested in bringing midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup back to the Emirates, according to a report from Sportzwiki (via Deporte Valenciano). He would reportedly cost somewhere in the area of £16.8 million.

Ozyakup spent part of his youth career at Arsenal, and he made two League Cup appearances for the Gunners in the 2011-12′ season, but he never made an appearance for the team in a Premier League game.

Ozyakup is now 23 years old and playing for Besiktas, and has reportedly drawn interest from both Arsenal and Manchester United.

The report indicates that Manchester United are probably the favorites to sign him if he does end up leaving his current club.

Ozyakup would be a good addition to the Arsenal midfield, as he is a very talented dribbler and passer, but the Gunners already have plenty of midfield options, so Ozyakup is probably not a priority at the moment.

It seems more likely that Ozaykup would end up at Manchester United, rather than Arsenal, but the Gunners may not be completely out of the running if they decide they really want the Turkish midfielder.
