Arsene Wenger has personally watched Yusuf Yazici, claims midfielder’s agent
Yazici has scored 10 goals in 43 appearances for Trabzonspor since breaking into the first-team back in 2015, but the 20-year-old is being heavily linked with a move to the Premier League.
The north London giants have been monitoring Yazici for some time and his agent, Adem Cebeci, insists Arsene Wenger has personally scouted the young Turkey international.
‘Yusuf wants a move to Europe,’ Cebeci stated.
‘Dr Erkut Sogut [another representative of Yazici] has been in talks with clubs and there is interest from the Premier League.
‘Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has watched Yusuf in person.’
Yazici has been compared to Arsenal superstar Mesut Ozil and Cebeci has refused to rule out a move to England in the January transfer window.
He added: ‘Yusuf’s style of football makes him suitable for the top European league.
‘Dr Sogut is in advanced talks with a few clubs, but we think it would be in his interests to keep playing first-team football at Trabzonspor and developing.
‘But things are developing very fast and with the transfer fees being thrown around we can’t rule out a January move.’
It’s understood Ligue 1 giants Monaco are also keeping close tabs on the promising midfielder.
