Arsenal Set to Sign Real Madrid Midfielder Nuri Sahin as Jose Mourinho Tells Midfielder He is Free to Leave

Emirates Stadium move is on the cards.

Arsenal target Nuri Sahin has been told by Jose Mourinho that he can leave Real Madrid.

The Gunners are reportedly interested in signing Sahin on a season-long deal with an option to buy, but face competition from Galatasaray for the 23-year-old Turkey midfielder.

Emirates Stadium is Sahin’s preferred destination and the transfer moved a step closer today when Mourinho declared he is surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu.

“The point is that he’s a young boy who wants to play every match,” the Real manager said.

“He wants to play to be happy and in Real Madrid with Xabi Alonso, Sami Khedira, Lassana Diarra, Esteban Granero and Mesut Ozil, the situation is not easy.

“Decide what you want to decide, to be happy. If you decide to leave we’re going to help you to leave.

“If you decide to stay, we’re going to support you and try to succeed this season.”

With Santi Cazorla set to complete his move to Arsenal, according to this source, it would appear that Arsene Wenger is set to complete a double La Liga swoop with Jose Mourinho admitting that Turkish international Nuri Sahin is free to leave the Bernabeu.

The 23 year old is seemingly very interested in moving to Arsenal and one would imagine that a successful season long loan spell could lead to a permanent move to the North London club.

The former Borussia Dortmund man has struggled to break into the Real Madrid first team and could well find it easier to make an impact at Arsenal.

Wenger probably feels the need to beef up his midfield options given that Jack Wilshere will be out until at least October whilst Tomas Rosicky, Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta have well documented injury issues. Sahin is a talented attack minded midfielder who likes to get forward and is known for having an eye for goal.
