Arsenal have not made an offer for Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan, ctthe midfielder’s agent has revealed.
The midfielder is bing linked with a move to the Emirates and Wenger is believed to be keen on his services. It was claimed that Wenger wants Turan to partner Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez in the Gunners midfield next season.
Reports in England claim the Gunners have made a concrete bid for the midfielder but it appears that is not the case as Turan’s agent has denied any knowledge of an official bid.
Turan’s agent Ahmed Bulut has now revealed he is unaware of any interest from Arsenal. He also told Goal that his client would not be leaving the Camp Nou this summer.
“No, I haven’t heard anything from Arsenal. Arda will be staying at Barcelona”, Ahmed Bulut said.
The Catalan giants are keen on keeping the midfielder, Barcelona chief Josep Maria Bartomeu recently ruled out the sale of the midfielder and fellow summer signing Alex Vidal.
Turan joined Barcelona from Atletico Madrid for a fee of €34m last season. He made his debut for the Catalan giants in January and is now being linked with a move away from the club.
In my opinion, it would be better of Wenger turns to other targets as Turan is already closing in on his 30th birthday.
