Arsenal ponder transfer bid for Barcelona midfielder – report

Arsenal are considering a transfer bid to try and sign Arda Turan from Barcelona, say reports in Spain

Arsenal are ready make a transfer bid to sign Arda Turan from Barcelona this summer, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish outlet Sport is reporting that Fenerbahce have contacted Barcelona about the possibility of signing the 29-year-old midfielder this summer and that Arsenal are also interested in the player.

Turan was limited to 25 appearances for Barcelona after joining the Catalan giants from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2015.

However, despite only sealing the move last summer, he is already being linked with a move away from the Camp Nou.

The same report says that Barcelona would be open to selling Turan this summer as long as the move is economically beneficial to the club.

Arsene Wenger is currently believed to be on the lookout for attacking reinforcements and has already tried to sign striker Jamie Vardy from Leicester City this summer.
