Arsenal News HQ brings you the latest Arsenal news, match analysis, transfer news, injury news, team news and rumours from trusted media outlets around the world.
Apparently, all we have been reading about Arda Turan leaving Barcelona for Arsenal this summer are false, if the comments made by the players agent are anything to go by.
Turan’s agent has insisted the Barcelona star wants to remain at the Nou Camp next season but could exit if the club don’t want him.
The Turkish international has been linked with a move to Arsenal but his representative Ahmet Bulut told Esports COPE the midfielder has not been told to leave.
“Nobody from Barça has been in touch with me to tell me that Arda is on the transfer list. And so as far as we are concerned, he will be continuing next season”, he said.
“As of the moment I have not spoken to any club about him. However, if Barça do turn around as say that they don’t count on Arda then that would be a different story.”
Turan has been earmarked by the tabloids as Wenger preferred choice to replace injured Santi Cazorla this summer, and news of such reports being false would surely come as a huge blow to fans who have been hoping to see the Barcelona star display his skill set at Arsenal.
Gooners, should Wenger make an official bid for the 30 year old or should the boss look elsewhere for a central midfield replacement for Cazorla?
