Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan was spotted in London with his agent over the weekend.
The midfielder was linked with a move to Arsenal last week, with reports claiming Barcelona are prepared to offer him to Arsenal in a swap deal to sign Ozil.
It wasn’t the first time Arsenal were being linked with the Turkish international but this time around it’s been heightened by Turan’s presence in London.
According to the Express, Turan’s agent Ahmed Bulut posted a picture of the pair in the plush London borough of Knightsbridge.
Bulut also granted an interview in Turkey, where he claimed they have received offers from a Premier League club.
“There are teams that want Arda,” he told reporters in Turkey. There are offers from England, Spain and Italy.
“Within fifteen days the situation will be clear. We have two very clear options, one of them is a loan, the other is a permanent transfer.”
Arsenal are the only Premier League club currently linked with the winger and spotting him in London somehow gives credence to those rumors.
Arsenal may be on the lookout for an attacking midfielder, with Ozil’s future currently uncertain. However, it would be sad if we consider the Barcelona a replacement for our German. Turan’s age and and style of play doesn’t make him a good signing for us.
