Arsenal consider move to re-sign Oguzhan Ozyakup

  Arsenal consider move to re-sign Oguzhan Ozyakup As we saw with Cesc Fabregas and possibly even Hector Bellerin if not this summer then perhaps down the line, Arsenal have been bitten by clubs looking to re-sign their former prodigies, but could the Gunners be about to do it themselves? According to Turkish-Football, Arsenal are one of three Premier League clubs that are reportedly interested in signing Besiktas midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup this summer. Ozyakup joined Arsenal in 2008 from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar and spent four years on the books at the Emirates, making just two senior appearances before returning to his homeland of Turkey with Besiktas for just £425,000. The 24-year-old has won three Super Lig titles during his five years at Besiktas, scoring 27 goals and providing 42 assists in 182 appearances across all competitions. With only 12 months to run on his contract, it’s believed that while there’s a long-term extension on the table from Besiktas, they will consider bids in the region of £13m for the central midfielder. Arsenal’s north London rivals Tottenham are also said to be keen, while West Ham and former Besiktas manager Slaven Bilic are linked as well.

Arsenal are set to appoint Liverpool's former head of fitness Darren Burgess as their director of high performance after agreeing a deal with Aussie rules side Port Adelaide.

The Australian will continue in his role with Adelaide for the remainder of the 2017 Australian Football League season and start of 2018 pre-season.

Burgess, who spent two years at Liverpool between 2010 and 2012, will begin his new role with the Gunners in July having been handpicked by manager Arsene Wenger.

"Reaching this decision has been one of the toughest decisions in my professional career," Burgess told the Adelaide website.

West Ham eye Arsenal striker Giroud

  West Ham eye Arsenal striker Giroud West Ham are looking at a potential transfer for Arsenal star Olivier Giroud, according to a report from the Mirror. The 30-year-old Frenchman has reportedly grown frustrated at the lack of game time he is getting at the Emirates, with West Ham ready to offer Giroud an escape route. French giants Marseille are also among those interested, along with some Italian clubs, but The Hammers are confident that they can match any offers to secure the signature of the prolific forward. Giroud has fallen to third-choice in the pecking order of Arsenal strikers, with Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck preferred. He has scored 12 goals in his last 11 appearances for The Gunners, ending the season by helping Arsenal win the FA Cup in a 2-1 victory over Chelsea – however he only played the last 12 minutes as a substitute. The Frenchman cost Arsenal £13 million when he joined from Montpellier back in 2012, and has scored 69 goals in 118 appearances for the North London club. With Arsene Wenger reportedly eyeing up a big money move for Monaco wonderkid Kylian Mbappe, Giroud’s place in the Arsenal side has come under scrutiny, and he may need to find a way out in order to revive his career and seek regular first-team football.

Arsenal are set to appoint former Liverpool high performance manager Darren Burgess , according to multiple reports in Australia and England.

"My family loves the lifestyle of Adelaide and more importantly we love everything about the Port Adelaide Football Club.

"When the opportunity came up to return to Port Adelaide I had no hesitation in returning. Port Adelaide is like family and once you've worked in this environment with so many outstanding people it is very difficult to leave.

"It's especially difficult knowing the club is on the right path for sustained success both on and off the field.

"However, the opportunity to return to the English Premier League and work at one of the world's most successful sporting organisations in Arsenal is an opportunity I simply couldn't refuse.

"I look forward to continuing having a relationship with Port Adelaide from afar and thank the entire club for their support and many great memories over two stints."
