Polish sensation Sebastian Szymanski, dazzling Turkey with Fenerbahce, has ignited a potential transfer war in North London.

With Tottenham Hotspur reportedly ready to break the bank at €35 million, Arsenal are rumored to be plotting a daring heist to snatch him from their rivals’ grasp according to Football Transfers.

Szymanski’s ascent has been meteoric. A loan spell at Feyenoord unleashed his talent, leading to a €9.75 million move to Fenerbahce last summer.

Turkish football journalist Ekrem Konur also tweeted on X that Arsenal are interested but that Fenerbahce will try to hold onto their star man until the end of the season.

Since then, he’s become a linchpin, conjuring 12 goals and 14 assists in just 33 appearances. This magic hasn’t escaped Premier League notice, particularly in North London.

Tottenham, desperate for midfield reinforcements, are reportedly leading the charge with a €35 million offer.

But reports now claims that the Gunners have Szymanski on their radar too, eager to inject his creativity and cutting edge into their midfield.

However, the North London duo aren’t alone in their admiration. Napoli and Real Sociedad are rumored to be lurking as well. Szymanski’s stock has soared since his Turkish move.

But for his suitors, the price tag is just one hurdle. The allure of the Premier League, and the chance to prove himself on a bigger stage, could be equally enticing.

Fenerbahce are keen on keeping the midfielder on until the end of the season but could be forced to consider an offer for the right price.
