Alexis Sanchez has reportedly told Wenger to sign Barcelona star Arda Turan who is being linked with a move to the Emirates.
Reports claim Barcelona are looking to sell the playmaker they signed just last summer and the Emirates have been touted as his potential destination. It is claimed Wenger wants an all star attacking midfield next season and sees Turan as the perfect player to line up alongside Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
According to Spanish news outlet, Don Balon via the Daily Star, Arsenal are interested in signing Arda Turan and the Gunners interest is based on the recommendation of Alexis Sanchez.
Sanchez believes Turan will be a good signing for the club and has urged Wenger to complete the signing of the 29 year old.
It is believed that Wenger is a fan of the playmaker and Sanchez recommendation strengthens Wenger’s desire to sign the Turkey international.
Wenger has now put aside a £20m fee to sign the midfielder but Barca could demand closer to £35m for Turan’s services.
Chelsea are believed to be interested in the midfielder too and are expected to rival Arsenal for his signature.
Turan is a quality player and would improve our squad considerably but at 29, the midfielder is getting closer to the end of his career hence,it is better we look elsewhere.
