Arda Turan: Wanted at Arsenal

Barcelona are reportedly willing to allow £20million-rated Arda Turan to leave the club as interest from Arsenal and Chelsea intensifies.

Turan only joined Barca a year ago but was made to wait until January before he could be registered due to the La Liga champions’ transfer embargo.

The Turkey star managed only nine league starts, with another nine appearances coming off the bench.

Both Arsenal and Chelsea have been monitoring the 29-year-old’s situation, and Catalan publication Sport say Barca are willing to allow Turan to leave the Nou Camp this summer, though talks are planned with the player.

The London clubs will face competition for Turan, with Fenerbahce and Galatasaray both said to be keen to bring the Turkish star home.
