Within just 4 days as the new head coach of the elite Catalan club FC Barcelona, Arnesto Valverde has started making highlights with the summer transfers looking to reshape the squad to get to winning ways at the start of the season.
Valverde has now shown green light to Arda Turan leaving the club, if the right price is bid. Turan who was brought to Camp Nou from Atletico Madrid for 24 million pounds in 2015 has failed to make a mark at the club.
With weak performance and injury in mid-season, an out from the club looked certain. Now according to Turkish Football, Arda has been a long time target for Arsenal. According to reports, the London club has been in talks with the player’s agent for quite some time and now has Valverde’s consent should the right bid be received. Arnesto Valverde who replaced Luis Enrique as Barca’s manager, would look to bring the liga trophy back to Camp Nou in the upcoming season.
Arsene Wenger who signed a 2 year extension with the gunners, will look to strengthen his midfield and get back to the Champions League where they actually belong. The arrival of Arda Turan could strengthen Arsenal’s midfield and provide them with some firepower to achieve their targets.
If some kind of agreement is reached between the clubs, then it is highly likely that Turan would move to the Emirates and try his luck in the Premier League next season.
