The report states that Arsene Wenger has had personal conversations with Ozyakup regarding a summer transfer back to England.

After enjoying four years at Arsenal at the early stages of his playing, the source suggests that he is "seriously considering" a return to the North London club.

Ozyakup joined the Gunners in 2008 from AZ Alkmaar in Holland, before making his competitive debut in 2011.

After a torrid time in London, Ozyakup joined the Turkish giants in 2012 for a reported fee of £500,000 following his inability to enter into mainstream team of the Gunners.

However, the Besiktas captain has since established himself as one of Turkey's most promising prospects with two consecutive Turkish Super Lig wins with Besiktas.

Besiktas fallen short this term, and are currently fourth in the table after 21 games but Wenger is keen to add another midfielder to his ranks as his sixth-placed side continue to lack consistency in the Premier League.
