According to talkSport, Arsenal are preparing to re-sign their former player Oguzhan Ozyakup, and are ready to pay 25 times what they originally sold him for back in 2012.
The Turkish international joined the Arsenal academy just before his 16th birthday, but, despite showing promise at youth football level, only made one competitive appearance for the senior team in a League Cup tie against Shrewsbury, before being sold to Besiktas for £400,000.
Since then, the 25-year old has forged a successful career with the Turkish champions, making over 150 appearances for them, and claiming 27 goals and 43 assists in the process. He has also played 30 times for his country at full international level.
Now it looks like he could be set for a return to North London for a fee of around £10 million, as Arsenal look to replace Mesut Oil who is set to leave at the end of the season when his contract expires.
