According to The Mirror, Arsenal sent a scout to watch Besiktas midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, but the former Gunners player did not take to the pitch.
The Gunners are tracking the Turkey star as they look to strengthen their squad over the summer and had wanted to see him up close against Bayern Munich.
The Mirror, claims Arsene Wenger sent scouts to watch how he performed against the Bundesliga giants, only to come back empty-handed.
For Ozyakup, 25, did not make the starting eleven for the Champions league last 16 match – and couldn’t even get a chance to shine as a substitute.
That may have been a blessing for the highly-rated Dutch-born player, as Besiktas crashed to a thumping 5-0 defeat in the Allianz Arena to all but end their European dreams for another season.
Despite the lack of match action last night, the Gunners are still keen to keep tabs on Ozyakup with the view to bringing him to the club at the end of the season.
