The Turkish under-21 star has transformed the Black Sea based side since establishing himself as a first-team player at the turn of the year.

Trabzonspor have lost just once in 2017 following Yazici’s introduction to the team – the one defeat coming against leaders Besiktas.

Yazici’s impressive form has attracted widespread interest from across Europe.

Turkish-Football recently reported that Manchester United and Arsenal have been scouting the youngster.

Yazici is now represented by Mesut Ozil’s agent Dr Erkut Sogut after striking a deal with his agent Adem Cebeci a fortnight ago.


Lyon have also been linked with Yazici according to the Star newspaper.

Haberturk meanwhile have reported that Borussia Dortmund are also in the race.

Per the source, Trabzonspor have set an £8 million price tag for the attacking midfielder.
