The report comes in the wake of claims made in The Times of London that Wilshere, who was forced to pull out of the England squad today because of tendinopathy in his knee, has been strongly linked with a move to Goodison Park this summer should he fail to agree new terms with Arsenal.
Like Ozyakup, the Gunners' midfielder is out of contract at the end of the current campaign but the Turkish source claims that Everton will look to the Besiktas man to link back up with Cenk Tosun if Wilshere eludes them.

Described as an intelligent player, in the mould of Zidane.
Go for it, I say. Definitely a better bet than Wilshere, whose wage demands would be ridiculous.

Apparently a #10 out of the Arsenal academy.
For what it's worth, his YouTube reel:
And an all-caps NO on Wilshere. How many ankle surgeries? Leg fractures? It's too bad for the lad because he's a genuine talent. But, just turned 26, he's already a never-will because his legs aren't having it.
No doubt a club will pick him up. Just please not Everton.

His range of passing is quite something and to have a player with that kind of vision would be a game-changer for our pedestrian midfield. He seems to either pass or drive forward at every opportunity.
This fella for me, a big Yes Please.

The only difference is the one heading north(west) will get knocked out of the League Cup in his first appearance in the competition.

Stats on Ozyakup, that I've found so far, are inconclusive/unimpressive.
Whilst I'm not in favour of us signing "Wheelchair Jack", I can not help but recall that many Evertonians were aghast (I was delighted) when in 1982 we signed a 26-year-old midfielder (a boyhood red) with a scary looking injury record of his own: Peter Reid.
