According to reports making the round, Arsenal have been handed a massive blow as January transfer target is reportedly close to signing for West Ham.
This report claims Slaven Billic is interested in reuniting with the 23-year-old Oğuzhan Özyakup who he has worked with during his two-year stay in Besiktas.
Ozyakup has been exceptional this season, he has attracted the likes of Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan Newcastle, Valencia and now West Ham are all keen for his signature.
However, the report claims the Hammer are sitting in pole position for his signature and they are set to sign him in January.
The Turkish International has found the back of the net 11 times in 85 games of Besiktas since joining them in the summer of 2012.
Arsene Wenger hopes to also reunite with the star who left the Gunners without playing a single game for them.
