Trabzonspor join the race for Arsenal target Tolgay Arslan
Trabzonspor have joined the race to sign Tolgay Arslan from HSV.
According to reports in the Turkish media, Trabzonspor have been in talks with the 24-year-old and his club.

Arslan’s contract with Hamburg runs out at the end of the season and he will be enter to enter direct talks with other clubs if he does not renew his current deal.
Arsenal as well as Besiktas, Lazio, Napoli and Galatasaray have all been closely linked with the hard working midfielder.
The Germany and Turkey U20 international moved to Hamburg from Dortmund in 2009 on a free transfer.
Arslan can represent either Turkey or Germany at international level but has vowed to play for the Crescent-Stars.
The 24-year-old was born in Germany but can play as a domestic player in Turkey due to being of Turkish origin.
