EPL top six battle to sign £17.5m-rated Arsenal prime target, player asked to leave club

21-year-old Trabzonspor playmaker Yacizi who has been directly involved in six goals this season could leave the Turkish Super league in the summer as SporX suggests that top Premier League clubs including Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United are monitoring the player’s performance.

The player who shares the same agent with Arsenal’s playmaker Mesut Ozil still has an active contract with Trabzonspor which will expire by the end of the 2022-23 season, but he might leave the Turkish side should any of the interested clubs offer a huge-money deal for the youngster.

Liverpool and Bayern Munich were believed to be tracking the player during the previous transfer period in January according to Fanatik, but both teams didn’t make an official approach to his agent for negotiations.

It was reported by Fanatik back in November that Arsenal made a £14million move for the Turkey international, but the Gunners’ deal was rejected as Trabzonspor seemed not ready to bid farewell to the promising midfielder.

The latest report via Turkish media outlet Fotomac reveals that Yacizi’s agent Dr Erkut Sogut is set to convince his client to end his stay in his homeland by the end of the season. Sogut reportedly advised the youngster star to consider a move to the English Premier League.

Fotomac further suggested that Trabzonspor won’t accept a fee below £17.5million from any club who are willing to acquire his signature in the summer.
