According to reports, Arsenal are lining up a move for Barcelona forward, Arda Turan, this summer.

The Barcelona man is rumoured to be setting the Gunners back €29m in their bid to secure the former Atletico Madrid star, who’s struggled for game time since switching La Liga clubs in 2015.

The Catalan giants spent a reported €34m on the forward, who’s scored 13 goals in 29 appearances over all competitions this season. So, if the reports are true, Arsenal would be getting him at a discounted price.

The claims come shortly after reports that Barca are keen to sell Turan in order to free up some wages so they can offer Lionel Messi, who’s out of contract in 2018, a new bumper deal.

Turan is contracted with the Spanish team until 2020 but if both he and the club are eager for him to leave, it’s likely he could leave this summer.

The Turkey international has also been linked with clubs in China.
