Sports direct reports that the player has been scouted several times by Arsenal scouts and they are by now convince of what they have seen of the player and are now prepared to table a bid of 25 million pounds for the player.
The player has been on Arsenal radar for the last 3 transfer windows with reports that they gunners were close to signing the player in the January transfer window but those reports came to nothing. Arsenal are now desperate to sign the player after seeing Chamblain getting injured and declared to be out with the injury for at least 3 months.
Just few days ago the player’s agent confirmed the player is willing to leave the Spanish club for a club in the EPL.
“The club does not want to sell Arda. However, if we were to get an offer equal to his £29m buy-out clause Atletico should listen to such a proposal.
“Arsenal and Liverpool? A destination in the Premier League would be to the liking of the player and I can confirm there are clubs interested, like the two mentioned.
“At the moment there are no concrete offers, only preliminary contacts.”
Aside Turan, Arsenal are also said to be interested in signing Real Madrid’s Angel Di Maria from Real Madrid. According to reports, Arsenal are also interested in signing Karim Benzema and have tabled a big of 40 million pounds which has neither been rejected or accepted by Real Madrid
