AC Milan hold talks over Arsenal wonder kid target who has same agent as Mesut Ozil, Man United also linked
Trabzonspor attacking midfielder Yusuf Yazici has attracted interest from across Europe after an impressive breakthrough season.
Turkish-Football first reported that Manchester United have been keeping tabs on Yazici back in March.
A source close to Trabzonspor revealed to Turkish-Football that United, Arsenal and Lyon kept tabs on Yazici for most of the second half of the season.
Yazici burst onto the scene at the turn of the year after being drafted in as a replacement for the injured Mehmet Ekici.

The 20-year-old ended up keeping Ekici out of the team and establishing himself as one of the most promising players in the league.
The Trabzonspor No 10 has an effortless style with a wonderful passing range and the creativity to crack the sturdiest defence.
Yazici’s style has been compared with Mesut Ozil so it was fitting that the Arsenal star’s agent Dr Erkut Sogut snapped him up a few months back.
Italian giants AC Milan have become the latest club to be linked with Yazici.
Haberturk claim that the Serie A outfit held initial talks with Trabzonspor over the possibility of a transfer.
Per the source, AC Milan held separate talks with Trabzonspor while negotiating a deal for Kucka.
A deal has yet to be agreed but AC Milan did recently sign fellow Turkish international Hakan Calhanoglu.
Yazici wrapped up his first season in the Super Lig with eight goals and 13 assists for Trabzonspor.
