Arsenal are likely to have a summer clear-out following a disappointing season. Star duo Mesut Ozil as well as Alexis Sanchez yet to sign a new contract, which will have 12 months remaining in the summer both are being tipped to leave. Turan was captain of Galatasaray and wears the armband for the national team. While he was not the official captain for Atletico Madrid he was one of the most influential members of the team.
