Arsenal could miss out on signing Barcelona star midfielder Arda Turan.
According to the Turkish outlet Fanatik, the Turkey international could finally make a return to his former club Galatasaray.
The 30-year-old hasn’t featured for Barcelona in the league since the appointment of Ernesto Valverde as manager.
Per the source, the Istanbul giants are in talks with Barcelona and want to sign Turan on a short-term deal.
Meanwhile, a source close to Arda Turan recently revealed to Turkish-Football that Turan would only consider the Premier League if he is to leave Barca.
Turkey national team manager Mircea Lucescu confirmed last month that Arsenal have already made an offer for Turan
“I spoke to Valverde, Arsenal made Arda an offer,” Lucescu told reporters.
“Arda was on the verge of joining Arsenal this summer but it did not go through.”
Turan has a little under three-years remaining on his contract with Barcelona.
The 30-year-old provided seven assists and scored 13 goals in 30 appearances for the Catalan giants last season. Turan made the move to Barcelona for £34 million from Atletico Madrid back in 2015.
