Berkay Ozcan has admitted that he’s in touch with Mesut Ozil and Arsenal about a possible move to North London.
Ozcan who currently plays for Stuttgart in Germany is a good friend of Ozil and has said they always hang out when they’re in Germany together. He said:
“When we are both in Germany, we are meet when the opportunity arises…”
The 19-year-old midfielder has played 26 times for Stuttgart, only three this season and has also played for the Turkish Under-21s.
Ozcan told beIN Turkey via FoxSports:
“My agent and I are in talks with Arsenal who have been scouting me for the past two years and send representatives to watch my games. I am not sure if now is the right time to join Arsenal, it may be a bit early for me. I want to prove myself here and keep developing first, ultimately, Arsenal is the club I want to join in the future, God willing I will achieve my goal…”
Having only played three times for Stutgart this season, this story sounds a bit like a player whipping up a bit of interest using Arsenal as the whip.
