Arsenal set for Man United transfer battle in pursuit of the ‘New Mesut Ozil’

Arsenal are the latest side to take a keen interest in Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Hakan Calhanoglu according to the Metro.

The 21-year-old enjoyed a superb campaign in Germany last term, scoring 12 goals in all competitions and providing eight assists to boot, and has already netted five times this season.

The set-piece specialist is also being followed by Man United, Barcelona and AC Milan and his Bundesliga employers may struggle to retain the services of the former Hamburg man for much longer.

Louis van Gaal is said to have sanctioned a €36m bid for the young BayArena star according to Turkish Football and a successful move for the Bundesliga talent certainly won’t come cheap.
