Arsenal Pull Out Of Move For World Cup Finalist After Super Lig Giants Demand £26.9m

Arsenal have pulled out of a move for Besiktas defender Domagoj Vida according to the Standard.

Per the source, the Gunners opted against the transfer after Besiktas demanded £26.9m for the Croatia international.

Arsenal manager has reportedly declared himself satisfied with the current defensive setup.

Unless there is late drama over the next hour Arsenal will head into the new season with Shkodran Mustafi, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Rob Holding and Konstantinos Mavropanos as his four center-backs.

The Black Eagles president Fikret Orman traveled to London yesterday alongside club officials with selling Vida among one of the primary goals of the trip.

Besiktas look unlikely to sell Vida to a Premier League side unless there is a last minute move for the defender.

The Black Eagles do have until the end of the month to sell him to another European side as the transfer window shuts at later dates on the continent.

The report claims that the Gunners are looking to part ways with David Ospina and Danny Welbeck.

Besiktas is named among the interested parties for Ospina but there is no rush to get the deal pushed through today.

The Super Lig window runs until 31 August this season.
