Published Add your comment

Arsenal midfield starlet Oguzhan Ozyakup could leave the club on loan this winter.

The 18-year-old Dutch midfield is reportedly being tracked by a string of clubs in his homeland, with PSV Eindhoven the favourites to take the player away from Arsenal.

TalkSPORT claims that Arsene Wenger is ready to sanction the deal, with the Frenchman believing that the loan move could have long-term benefits for Arsenal with regards to first team football in the future.

Ozyakup signed for the Gunners in 2008, joining from Eredivisie outfit AZ Alkmaar at the age of 15.

The central midfielder has risen through the academy ranks at Arsenal, and currently represents the second string on a regular basis. He also captained his country at U16 and U17 level.

Despite failing to receive a senior chance in the current Carling Cup run, big things are expected of Ozyakup at the Emirates and Arsenal will not want to lose the player on a permanent basis.

The opportunity at the Phillips Stadium is one Arsenal are unlikely to deny the player though, and a six-month stint away from north London is expected to be confirmed at some point this month.
