Reports in Spain are claiming Arsenal could make a move for Barcelona’s Arda Turan this summer.
Arsene Wenger has already hinted that it would be a busy summer at the Emirates this year, with a number of top arrivals expected before the start of next season.
Turan is being linked with a move away from Barcelona, having failed to live up to expectations since joining the club in 2015. He has struggled to make an impact at the Camp Nou and reports claim the Catalan giants are prepared to sell him in order to make space for new arrivals.
And Arsenal are believed to be keeping tabs on his situation particularly due o the extended injury blow to Santi Cazorla.
El Mundo Deportivo via Tribal Football claims Turan has already told his teammates that he’ll be leaving the Camp Nou this summer.
“Either I go of my own accord, or they’ll kick me out”, he’s confessed.
Chelsea are also believed to be watching the Turkey international and could make a move for him when the summer transfer window opens.
Turan is a quality player on his day but at 30, I don’t think he is exactly what Arsenal want at the moment.
Yes we would do well with more attacking options but Turan wouldn’t make any significant impact on long-term, except being an short term replacement for Cazorla and other injury-prone Arsenal attacking midfielders.
