A report claims that Lille attacker Yusuf Yazici - labelled 'the next Mesut Ozil' - is on Arsenal's transfer radar.

Arsenal are reportedly keeping tabs on Lille star Yusuf Yazici, who has been compared to current Gunners outcast Mesut Ozil.

The Turkey international has scored seven goals in 12 appearances for Lille this season, including a couple of hat-tricks in the Europa League.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal are one of a number of sides weighing up a future move for the 23-year-old.

Yazici previously spent four seasons in his native Turkey with Trabzonspor, making over 100 appearances for the club.

Arsenal have been on the lookout for a creative midfielder for a number of transfer windows, with playmaker Ozil now completely out of the picture at the Emirates Stadium.

The German has been linked with a move to Los Angeles Galaxy after being left out of Mikel Arteta's Premier League and Europa League squads.
