Barcelona have told Arsenal target Arda Turan that he can leave the club during the upcoming January transfer window.

The 30-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Barcelona and has been omitted from the squad by manager Ernesto Valverde.

Turan is yet to feature for the Catalan giants so far this season.

His situation has put Arsenal on red alert as Wenger is currently looking for a replacement for Mesut Ozil who is yet to extend his contract at the Emirate Stadium.

Meanwhile, the flamboyant midfielder has revealed to his family that he is happy at Barcelona but would only consider a move to the Premier League.

Arsenal made a bid for Turan over the summer transfer window.  Turkey national team boss Mircea Lucescu confirmed that the Gunners offer.

“I spoke to Valverde, Arsenal made Arda an offer,” Lucescu stated.

“Arda was on the verge of joining Arsenal this summer but it did not go through.”
