Arsenal are a step closer to signing Barcelona winger Arda Turan after being told he was free to leave the Nou Camp, reports claim.
According to the Daily Mail, Barcelona want to reduce their crippling wage bill in order to sign Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho.
And have told Turan, Aleix Vidal and Thomas Vermaelen they can leave.
Arsenal have frequently been linked with Turan, who Barcelona paid £34million for in July 2015, and may finally get the deal over the line at a heavily reduced fee.
