The Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern were not exactly thrilled with the signing of Bolton Wanderers starlet Rob Holding yesterday, with our resident Gunners followers itching for a big-name signing.
The long-suffering Arsenal fans have been waiting for boss Arsene Wenger to splash the cash and the Frenchman is under pressure to get the cheque book out once more this year.
One of our resident Gooners has spotted on article on the Talk Sport website via Spanish newspaper Sport, which claims the club are set to rival Chelsea for Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan.
The 29-year-old featured for Turkey at Euro 2016 and despite being booed by his own supporters in one game he is still a key player for the club and country.
The defensive midfielder made 18 appearances in La Liga last season although the Catalans could look to offload this summer if the price is right.
One Arsenal fan is sat putting a sizeable amount into the fruit machine and he thinks Turan would be a perfect player to protect the Gunners’ back four and hopes a deal can be done this summer.
Arsenal fans, would you welcome Turan to the club? Would he be a solid acquisition? Who else should Wenger try to sign?
