The 25-year-old has also played a key role in Besiktas’ impressive UEFA Champions League campaign so far.

The Turkey international can play in either an attacking midfield role or as a deeper midfield playmaker. Ozyakup can play in the same position as Mesut Ozil if the 29-year-old leaves the club at the end of the season.
