ARDA TURAN has given the thumbs up to a summer transfer to Arsenal, according to reports.

Claims from Spain say the Turkey international has agreed to join the Gunners.

Barcelona value Turan for just under £26m – but Arsenal are negotiating to try and lower that fee.
The playmaker seems destined to leave the Nou Camp this summer after struggling to make an impact during his two years in Catalonia.

He’s been blighted by injuries and has been limited to mostly substitute appearances.

And Spanish outlet El Desmarque say he’s keen to come to England.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger signed a new two-year deal last week.

That agreement is said to have accelerated Arsenal’s move for the former Atletico Madrid star.

El Desmarque also say the deal could be done in the next few weeks.

Barcelona are looking for a replacement and are keen to seal Turan’s departure.

Barca director Robert Fernandez is the man charged with finding someone to replace the 30-year-old midfielder.

Wenger has been told not to dither in the transfer market after signing fresh terms.

The Gunners board are keen to learn from the lessons of the past which saw the north London side miss out on the likes of Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain.
