Arsenal and Tottenham suffer blow in chase for 24-year-old

Our Tottenham fans here in the Transfer Tavern are loving this season as their fierce rivals Arsenal continue to struggle in the Premier League.

It’s been another year to enjoy for Spurs with them once again looking good to finish in the Champions League spots as well as possibly closing Chelsea down in the title race with a few games to go.

Arsenal, meanwhile, look like they’re well out of the top four race at the moment and can only dream of a title race with plenty of rumours surrounding the club.

One rumour concerning both sides, though, concerned Turkish midfielder Oguzhan Ozyakup with The Daily Star claiming earlier this week that the pair were looking into signing him in the summer.

Now, though, it appears the talented Besiktas man will be going nowhere with club president Fikret Orman being quoted by Turkish-Football as saying:

“We want Ozyakup to stay, there is a lot of talk of him leaving but we want him here and will offer him a new 4-5 year deal.”

Looks like Arsenal and Spurs will have to look elsewhere to bolster their squads, then, with this summer set to be another busy one according to our landlord.

Thoughts, Arsenal and Spurs fans? Let us know below!
