Arsenal line-up move to further raid on Turkish giants

Gokhan ToreArsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been in a joyful mood in the past few days and have been discussing a tasty rumour they read this morning, which follows on from their conversations yesterday.

One lad sparked the debate as he brought in a copy of today’s Daily Expresswhich states Arsenal are looking to bring Besiktas midfielder Gokhan Tore to the club in January.

Interestingly, this goes hand-in-hand with another rumour that was being discussed in the Tavern last night, as Turkish Football stated the Gunners were looking to bring another Besiktas man to the Emirates; in the form of former youth star Oguzhan Ozyakup.

Regarding Tore, the report says Arsenal will have to pay £15m for the player in the new year but the fans are happy to see the Gunners linked with an outfield player, having failed to add any se nor recruits other than Petr Cech over the summer.

A quick Google search from our regular at the bar showed Tore has starred for Besiktas so far this term, grabbing five assists and scoring one goal in seven games; with the Turkish club sitting pretty at the top of the table.

Arsenal fans, would Gokhan Tore be a decent addition to your midfield in January? Let us know below in the comments!
