The agent of Arda Turan has confirmed reports that Arsenal are interested in signing the highly rated midfielder. Yesterday, news broke that Arsenal are interested in signing the midfielder with many frustrated Arsenal fans quickly assuming it is one of the many propaganda from Wenger.
However, Arda Turan’s agent has confirmed the interest even went as far as claiming the player is interested in making a move to the EPL. He also confirmed Liverpool are also interested and there that discussions have commenced though he didn’t say which of the two clubs have opened discussions with the player.
“Atletico Madrid does not want to sell Arda [Turan]. However, if his €24m minimum-fee release clause is activated then they will have to listen to offers, A transfer to the Premier League is likely. There are a few clubs interested. Liverpool is one and Arsenal another. There have been no concrete offers but two clubs have spoken about wages,”
The player has always been linked to Arsenal in the last 2-3 transfer windows and it remains to be seen if Arsenal will be signing him this time around. He is certainly a player that Wenger could do with especially as the gunners are shortly in numbers and need some experience player like Arda Turan on the wing.
