Arda Turan’s agent responds to Arsenal transfer reports
Arda Turan's agent expects his client to continue at Barcelona despite reported interest from Arsenal
Arda Turan’s agent has revealed that he hasn’t spoken to any clubs about the Turkish midfielder.
The Barcelona star’s future has been a source of relentless speculation in recent weeks despite moving to Camp Nou less than 18 months ago.
Turan has been linked with a potential move to Arsenal in recent weeks as Arsene Wenger looks to bolster his squad ahead of the 2017-18 season.
However, the Turkey international’s agent admits he is surprised to hear talk of Barcelona selling Turna in the 2017 summer transfer window.
Speaking to Esports COPE, as quoted by AS, Ahmet Bulut insisted that he hasn’t been in contract with any clubs about the midfielder.
“Nobody from Barça has been in touch with me to tell me that Arda is on the transfer list. And so as far as we are concerned, he will be continuing next season,” Bulut said.
“As of the moment I have not spoken to any club about him. However, if Barça do turn around as say that they don’t count on Arda then that would be a different story.”
The Gunners finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term to result in their demotion to the Europa League.
Arsenal won the FA Cup final at Wembley last month thanks to a 2-1 win against Premier League champions Chelsea.
The Gunners have the won the competition three times in four seasons.
