Arsenal receive another huge blow in race to complete 1st January signing

Arsenal will face competition from Hertha Berlin for the services of Besiktas midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup, reports the
Daily Cannon.
Reports in Turkey have continuously linked Arsenal with a move for Ozyakup because of his impressive performances for Besiktas in recent years.
The midfielder came through Arsenal academy, but didn’t make a league debut for the club before he was sold. The Gunners are understood to be impressed by Ozyakup’s development and are now lining up a move for him.
His contract at Besiktas expires at the end of the season and it doesn’t appear like he is interested in signing a new deal.
Arsenal are reportedly monitoring developments closely and could make a move to sign him in the future.
Should an official approach be made, Arsenal may have to battle Hertha Berlin for his signature.
However, Arsenal are entitled to 30% of Ozyakup’s transfer fee if Besiktas decides to sell in January and the Turkish giants are reluctant to pay Arsenal any money.
They’ve supposedly held talks with Arsenal over the possibility of scrapping out the sell-on clause but they were turned down.
Besiktas may decide to let the midfielder’s contract run out before offering him a new deal and that would scrap out the clause but that would depend on the midfielder’s desire to stay.
Should he decide to leave, Arsenal stand to gain, irregardless of whether he joins us or not.
