Arsenal in three way battle to sign Barcelona star

Posted by

Arsenal are involved in a three-way battle to sign Barcelona’s star midfielder Arda Turan according to the Spanish publication Sport.

The report states that Chelsea’s new manager Antonio Conte is prepared to promise the Turkish international first-team football in order to convince him to join the West London side.

Meanwhile Calciomercato has claimed that Juventus are also eyeing a bid for Turan as a replacement for Paul Pogba if he leaves over the summer transfer window.

The Sun also claim that Barcelona could be willing to sell the Turkish international for a cut-price £23 million deal despite signing him for more from Atletico Madrid last season.

Despite being linked with a move aboard, Turan does have four-years remaining on his contract. The former Galatasaray midfielder is one of his nation’s most capped players, having made 94 appearances at senior international level and scoring 17 times.

Turan missed the first half of last season due to the FIFA transfer ban imposed on the club but he did make 25 appearances after making his debut in January and was part of the La Liga and Spanish Cup winning sides.
