‘Please don’t be true’ – Arsenal fans react to reports that Barcelona star could be signed as a replacement for Mesut Ozil
Arsenal have been closely linked with a move for Barcelona star Arda Turan over the past season.
Barcelona are planning to offer Turan as part of a swap deal for Mesut Ozil according to the Sun.
Turan’s agent Ahmet Bulut meanhwile confirmed that he is in talks with four clubs and that there is a Premier League side among the interested parties.
“I have been in talks with four clubs, everything will be sorted in 15 days,” Bulut was quoted as saying by Turkish-Football.
“Turan will either be loaned out or sold, there are offers from the Premier League, Spain and Italy.”
We took a look at how Arsenal fans reacted on social media to reports that Turan could be on his way to North London.

Turan was also spotted in London along with Bulut over the weekend.
Not everyone was convinced that Ahmet Bulut is his agent, some thought it was actually Jamie Oliver. See the resemblance?
With @jamieoliver as an agent????

Not everyone is on board as far as bringing Arda to Arsenal is concerned.
No his trash….
Arsenal should look into Leon Goretzka, Julian Draxler & Thomas Lemar….
Fuck Arda Turan https://t.co/VkFcnE9jG8

Arda Turan on loan in Jan with the possible sale of Alexis? Sounds like typical Arsenal

There is also talk of Turan replacing Ozil which does not sound like the greatest idea if I am to be perfectly honest.
Totally underwhelmed by the prospect of replacing Mesut with Arda Turan. Please don’t be true #arsenal

That’s not called a swap…that’s called a STEAL

Well those are the stats. Turan’s goal and assist ratio is actually pretty good.
In the 15/16 season we wanted Turan & he signed for Barça mocking us by stating he may have come had he not been good enough for them.
Since then he has played 55 games for Barça in all comps starting only 17 & hasn’t set foot on a pitch for them this season.
