Arsenal Find Cut-Price Replacement For Jack Wilshere Who Could Be On His Way To Everton

Arsenal are preparing for life after Jack Wilshere who is expected to leave the club as a free agent at the end of the season.

Wilshere will cease to be an Arsenal player if he does not sign a contract extension before the end of the campaign.

The Gunners midfielder has had no shortage of interest with Everton being closely linked with a move.

The Daily Mail report that the Toffees are willing to pay an £8 million sign on fee to secure his services.

Reports in Turkey claim that the North London based outfit have already found a replacement for Wilshere.

The Aksam newspaper claim that Besiktas midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup could be set for a return to the North London based outfit.

Per the source, Ozyakup would cost the Gunners around £60,000 per-season which is half what Wilshere is paid.

Additionally the 25-year-old is a former Arsenal youth player and was in fact Wilshere’s teammate in the 2009 Youth FA Cup winning side.

Ozyakup left Arsenal for Besiktas five years ago and has gone onto be directly involved in 75 goals.

The Turkey international has won the league title for the past two seasons and has years of Champions League and Europa League experience under his belt.

Ozyakup will be a free agent at the end of the season unless Besiktas strike a contract extension deal.

As things stand the midfielder could strike an agreement with Arsenal before the end of the current season.
