Arsenal want £30m midfield pair as Arsene Wenger sends scouts to monitor targets

Arsenal are reportedly keeping tabs on Besiktas pair Gokhan Tore and Oguzhan Ozyakup according to the Daily Express and Turkish Football respectively.

The Turkish national team pair are both said to interest Wenger and both are valued at around £15m and both spent an early portion of their professional careers in the Premier League.

23-year-old attacking midfielder Tore spent two years at Chelsea but failed to make an impact and was sold to Hamburg and has steadily matured into a very capable performer.

Ozyakup was at Arsenal between 2008 and 2012 but his only first-team involvement came in the League Cup before he was sold to Besiktas in the summer of 2012.

The 23-year-old central midfielder has gone on to rack up over 100 appearances for the SUper Lig side who currently top the table.
