Arsenal pare preparing to off Santi Cazorla plus cash to Atletico Madrid in exchange for Arda Turan according to the Metro.
The daily newspaper claim that the Gunners could make a surprise move for Turan and use Cazorla as part of the deal to bring the Turkish international to the Emirates.
Cazorla has two years remaining on this contract with Arsenal and has been targeted by Atleti over the past year.
Atleti boss Diego Simeone sees Cazorla as a perfect replacement for Turan, who has also been linked with Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester United.
Barcelona manager Luis Enrique wants Atletico Madrid star Arda Turan according to presidential candidate Bartemeu.
The presidential hopeful tweeted that Turan is one of Enrique’s main summer targets. “He’s a very good player, has real quality and perfectly marries what Luis Enrique wants for next season,” Bartomeu told Esport3.
Turan provided six assists and three goals in 46 appearances in all competitions for Atletico Madrid last season.
