Arsenal linked with a move for double Europa League hat-trick star

Arsenal is one of the teams interested in signing Lille’s Yusuf Yazici who has been in blistering form in the Europa League this season, according to Mail Online.

The Turkey international has emerged as one of the more exciting midfielders in Europe and he has been compared with Mesut Ozil because of his playmaking ability.

The midfielder is the main man at Lille at the moment and he will not come cheap, but his current form suggests that he will be worth it.

In his last Europa League game, he scored a stunning hat-trick against AC Milan at the San Siro to silence the already empty stadium.

Milan isn’t the only team that he has scored thrice against in that competition this season.

He also scored three times against Sparta Prague previous to that match.

At 23, he can only get better and if Arsenal does land him, they will be getting the perfect replacement for Ozil.

Having spent £16 million to sign him from Trabzonspor, Lille will not want to sell him cheaply, but the encouraging thing is that they are a selling club.

Arsenal has sidelined Ozil for the rest of his deal with them and replacing him with Yazici may be better than with Houssem Aouar.

      Ask Gabriell

  2. gunnerforlife says:

    What about the deal for Dominik Szoboszlai, the Hungarian is the perfect replacement for Ozil.

    1. McLovin says:

      Rumors has it, RB Leipzig has a deal in principle to sign him in January..

      Man we should have a feeder club like that as well..

    Don’t spend any more than 5 mill on any one in the next 3 years. Don’t pay any more than 25k p/w. Our results will be just the same.

      He deserves it Sue but it does show the lack of anything further up the field.

      I know its early days for him at the club but what a buy, looks 10X the player Maguire is and we paid less than half of what Manure did for him.

      1. Sue says:

        What a steal, Val!! It does make me chuckle how much they shelled out for Maguire… all the Mancs I know thought he was going to be the dog’s
        you know whats 😂😂

  5. Wole says:

    Get Aouar or Szoboszlai or Yazici or promote Cirjan Catalina & ESR permanently to the first team as playmakers. My take!

  6. Ochikwa Abacha says:

    It depends on the coach…but we need a better replacement for ozil thats our problem
