Big claims that NUFC have had a €15m bid accepted to sign former Arsenal midfielder

According to Turkish outlet Fotospor, Newcastle have had a €15m bid accepted by Besiktas to sign recently linked midfielder Oğuzhan Özyakup.

This must be taken with a pinch of salt until these claims are confirmed by sources slightly closer to the club, but this is certainly an exciting bit of news – if true.

The 25-year-old, formerly of Arsenal, had been set to leave the Turkish giants on a free this summer, however recently signed a new contract – a move that simply meant the club would at least receive a fee for him.

He can play as a central midfielder or number 10 and has 27 goals and 50 assists in just over 200 games for Besiktas – also having captained them for the majority of the 2017/18 season.

It’s believed that Palace and Everton also held an interest in signing the Turkish international this summer, so this could be a decent coup for the club if we were to pull this one off.

Based on the clips below, he could give us that flair and creativity we’ve been missing.
