According to the report, Arsene Wenger has had words with Ozyakup about a possible return to the club after they sold the Turkish midfielder to Besiktas in a £400,000 move back in 2012.

The former Arsenal youth player has netted 27 goals and has provided 46 assists in 207 matches in all competitions for his side over the last six campaigns.

The Gunners sold French star Francis Coquelin to Spanish La Liga side Valencia in the winter transfer window.

Wales international Aaron Ramsey and England star Jack Wilshere are prepared to become free agents when the season ends unless Arsenal can convince the duo to extend their deals.
