Sport in Spain believe that Arsenal should be able to purchase Arda Turan from Barcelona for over €30m in what is a very vague guesstimate.
Despite only signing for the club a year ago and only getting to play for them in the second half of the season, Turan has been linked heavily with a move away from the club but if I’m totally honest I don’t see him leaving the Catalan giants, at least not during this window.
With Luis Enrique standing up for him in a press conference recently it would seem that the speculation coming from Spain is just that – speculation.
As for Arsenal’s reported interest, there’s no evidence of that either.
While there’s no denying most clubs would be interested in a player of Turan’s ability, you’d really have to wonder just where on earth Wenger would put him given the number of players he already has in midfield.
Turan also turns 30 in January which is another massive mark against him in terms of a move to Arsenal. Wenger may already have to fork out mega money for an ageing striker.
Do you really think he would do it for yet another attacking midfielder who is approaching that milestone as well?
