Arsenal eyeing £25million Barcelona midfielder


With Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez now widely expected to leave Arsenal, the club have set about identifying replacements to bolster their squad.

Sanchez may be one of a kind, but Arsene Wenger seems to have already found a player who can step into Ozil’s role.

The Times
report that the Gunners are plotting a £25million bid for Barcelona’s Arda Turan, and the Blaugrana may be willing to let him go as they themselves are looking ahead to a summer of transition.

The Turkey international is 30, so he is not coming cheap for a player of that age.


However, Barca are unlikely to allow him to leave for much less than the £26million they paid Atletico Madrid for him just a couple of years ago.

Turan’s career at Camp Nou has never quite taken off. The playmaker is up against some fierce competition for a starting place and he’s started just 13 of 28 La Liga games this season.

A move to Arsenal should therefore be appealing, as he’d be just as valued as Ozil is now.
