Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
Arda Turan has spent the last two-plus seasons at Barcelona being a non-factor for the club. He has continually looked likely to leave, and January could finally see him go. Turan hasn’t played for Barcelona yet this term. He’s ready to leave to resurrect his career, and if reports are to be believed, Arsenal have made a bid for him already.
The Metro indicates he could join Monaco or Galatasaray. However, he seems set on playing for Wenger. The winger is currently valued at £13.5m, and Arsenal could be the club that sees Turan turn his career around.
Turan wants out of Barcelona badly and the club do not want him. The only question is, will Wenger sign someone in January? With the impending moves of Ozil and Sanchez, the logical idea would be for Wenger to sign one or two attacking players. But Turan is 30-years old, which could put Wenger off the transfer.
