Arsenal are interested in signing Stuttgart midfielder Berkay Ozcan, according to his agent.

As reported by FootballLondon, the 19-year-old’s agent Baris Yukselsen says that the Gunners are one of the teams interested in making a summer move for his client.

The Turkish U21 international has broken into the Stuttgart side this season and has established himself as a regular and it looks like his agent is trying to drum up interest in him

He said:

Many top clubs are interested at Berkay. Arsenal has Berkay on its list, but at the moment he is focusing on Stuttgart’s resurgence.

Whether the Gunners are interested in Ozcan remains to be seen as Yukselsen could be playing the old agent trick of declaring interest in his player to ensure he gets a better contract.

Having said that, Arsenal could well be in the market for another midfielder and the Turkish star could well fit the profile of the type of player who the club wants, both in terms of cost, age and style of play.
