Arsenal interested in Barcelona star Arda Turan

Arsenal are interested in Barcelona star Arda Turan according to Spanish sports newspaper AS.

The report claims that the Gunners have expressed an interest in the Turkish international winger and that Barcelona are considering offering Turan as well as Munir and Sandro in a part-exchange deal for Mesut Ozil.

The Turkish international winger was closely linked with a move to the Premier League over the summer but ended up staying in Spain instead.

Turan joined Barcelona on a five-year deal from Atletico Madrid over the summer transfer window and Luis Enrique has lavished praise on the bearded winger after a bright start.

Barca may be reluctant to part ways with Turan after a bright start to his Barcelona career scoring twice and providing four assists in his first 17 games.

The reigning La Liga champions have won all but one of the games – drawing the other – Turan has featured in this season.

Turan would become the first Turkish international player to join Arsenal if he were to make the move.
