ARSENAL are in the hunt for highly rated Stuttgart midfield talent Berkay Ozcan, his agent has confirmed.

The 19-year-old has made waves in the Bundesliga since breaking into Die Roten's first team, playing a part in seven goals in 18 appearances.

Ozcan is now contracted to Stuttgart until 2019, having signed a four-year-deal with the club. Although born in Germany, he is a Turkey underage worldwide, having played at Under-21 level for his country.

He said: "Many top clubs are interested in Berkay".

'Arsenal have Berkay on their list, but at the moment he is focusing on Stuttgart's resurgence'.

And there may well have been further suggestion that Arsenal are looking to sign the Turkish youth worldwide last week as long-term Arsenal scout Jurgen Kost claimed he was watching a player that fits Ozcan's description.

This is his breakthrough season having become an integral member of the side, making 18 appearances his club - now in top spot - tries to get promoted back into the Bundesliga.

Turkish-Football recently reported that Arsenal have been scouting a player in Germany of Turkish origin.

Ozcan was quoted in 2015 as saying: "Ozil is my idol, he visits us regularly and always give his support, he has helped me a lot". Nevertheless, he would look to become the latest player to come through the academy setup at the club's London Colney training base, which needs a new manager after the exit of Andries Jonker.
