Hakan Calhanoglu: Bayer Leverkusen star linked with move to Manchester United

Arsenal have joined Manchester United in the pursuit of Hakan Calhanoglu and Andriy Yarmolenko wants a move.


Manchester United and Arsenal are battling it out to sign Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu, according to talkSPORT.

The 21-year-old has been likened to Gunners star Mesut Ozil, but unlike Ozil, the German-born Calhanoglu is a Turkey international.

United have been linked with the player before, but now both Premier League clubs are lining up a January bid for the ‘free-kick king’. Barcelona and AC Milan are also interested, report the radio station.

Will it happen? Most probably not.


The Daily Express reports Andriy Yarmolenko has revealed that he would consider a move to the Premier League.

However, the Dynamo Kiev man simply said: “I still want to try my hand at some of the top championships as part of one of the strongest European clubs.”

Not a mention of the Premier League from the 25-year-old winger, who was believed to be watched by Jose Mourinho in midweek.

The Ukraine star has been linked with Liverpool, Stoke, Everton and Tottenham in recent months.


Tim Sherwood has said he would not have sold Christian Benteke for £100million if he hadn’t had a clause in his contract.

The Belgian striker signed for Liverpool for £32.5million in the summer after the Anfield club met his release clause, but Sherwood claims the frontman was invaluable at Villa Park.


Ex-Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard, 37, has ruled out returning to the Premier League on a loan deal during the MLS off-season after saying he needs rest.

Former Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby, 29, has suffered a setback in his attempts to return to competitive football for Marseille. (Daily Express)
