Arsenal reportedly interested in Barcelona star

Arsenal is reportedly interested in Barcelona midfielder and Turkish international Arda Turan, according to the Mirror. It has been reported that Turan could be sold for around £23 million this summer.

Turan played in 18 games in La Liga for Barcelona with 9 starts and 9 substitute appearances. He scored 2 goals with 3 assists in those 18 games.

Prior to his arrival at Barcelona, Turan played for Atletico Madrid from 2011-2015. He was a regular for Atletico for those seasons, making over 100 league appearances.

Turan is known as a good passer and good dribbler who can also make a defensive contribution. Turan is only 29 years old and he should have some more good years left in him.

Turan would certainly be a good player for Arsenal, but the Gunners already have a crowded midfield. Wenger might prioritize getting a center back and striker ahead of getting Turan.

Turan is likely to get sold this summer, and based on reports Arsenal is interested in making a bid. However, there are other teams interested aswell and a deal sending Turan to the Gunners is not imminent.
