The Turkish genius Arda Turan has been linked with Arsenal for the last couple of years, and he has now decided that it is time for him to leave Galatasary and Turkey, and at the moment it looks like his most likely destination is London.
Both Tottenham and Arsenal have both registered their interest in the talented playmaker, but his agent is still waiting for a concrete offer. Perhaps Wenger is still waiting to see what happens with Fabregas, but Turan is an extremely talented youngster. He has been captain of his team for the last year, despite only being 23 years old, and is experienced in Europe and internationally.
Just before Christmas last year, Turan let it be known that he would be looking to move on to bigger and better things this summer, and especially picked out Arsenal as his favoured destination after they had made enquiries last summer. He said: “At this moment in time I have no contact with any clubs. I had a lot of interest in the summer for him, but the club did not want to sell him,”
“He is now the new captain of Galatasaray, so I don’t think he will be sold in January. However, I do think he will be sold in July.
“In the summertime Arsenal made contact regarding him, but the club did not want to sell. He is interested in working under Arsene Wenger because he is very good at working with young players, and Arda wants to work in England.
“Arsenal are interested, and if they want him, Arda’s first choice is Arsenal.”
Last night Turan’s agent, Ahmet Bulut, said: “At the moment I have had no contact, unofficial or official from Arsenal or Arsene Wenger. Regarding Tottenham Hotspur there was a small enquiry regarding the player, but I have had no official contact or an official bid for the player.”
If you have a look at this video, you can see why Wenger was originally attracted to Turan, and perhaps he could be just as exciting in the Premiership as he is in Turkey…….
