Reports suggest Arsenal could move in for Arda Turan after Barcelona made it clear they want the midfielder out.

The 30-year-old has started just 23 league games for Barcelona and been subbed off in 11 of those as his stock plummets

Turan moved to Catalonia from Atletico Madrid in July 2015 – for around £30million – but could  not make his debut until January 2016 when their transfer ban expired.

But that wait has not seemed worth it as he has struggled with form and hamstring injuries ever since but is sitting pretty on a contract until 2020.

However, the only thing in Arsenal’s way of signing the Nou Camp flop is interest from former club Galatasaray in his Turkish home.

Last season Turan scored two hat-tricks in a dreamy December and that looked like kick-starting his Barca career but it has tanked dramatically again.
