“I have plans to play in Europe,” Ozyakup said.

“I was born in Holland and developed in England at the best academy in the world.

“I trained with the best and want to relive my time at Arsenal again. 

“I want to be an ambassador for Turkish football in Europe like Arda Turan.”

Ozyakup won the 2009 Youth FA Cup with Arsenal alongside Jack Wilshere and Francis Coquelin.

The Turkish international left Arsenal for Besiktas in 2012 and went onto win two league titles.

The 24-year-old has played an important role in European competition campaigns in the Champions League and Europa League.

Ozyakup has just over 12 months remaining on his contract and could be sold this summer if he does not agree to an extension.

Besiktas president Fikret Orman recently revealed that he will only let Ozyakup leave for a top club.

“We will sell players if we receive the right offers,” Orman was quoted as saying by Turkish-Football.

“We have not received the right offer yet for Oguzhan and as I have said before he will only join a club of the highest level club. 

“I would not for example sell him to Leicester City. 

“I want him to play at the highest level.”

Ozyakup has five goals and nine assists in all competitions this season.
