Arsenal

The £23.8m-rated midfield ace who could be a difference maker for Arsenal next season

Arsenal will be hoping for a successful summer this time around as they look to finally challenge for the Premier League title and give their fans something to cheer about in terms of league football.

Despite an FA Cup Final to look forward to and a late run at securing a top four spot, the Gunners fans here in the Tavern have done their fair share of complaining this season.

Our landlord has been all ears as he has listened to their concerns, and one thing he thinks they need to do is go out and add some real quality to the team in the summer, players who are of similar ilk to the likes of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.

One man who we think could be an excellent signing is current Barcelona man Arda Turan, who is valued at £23.8m by Transfermarkt.

The Turkish star has not quite settled in at the Nou Camp since moving from Atletico Madrid, but is a player of immense quality and still has plenty to offer in his career.

Arsenal need more quality in the attacking midfield areas, with their over reliance on Ozil and Sanchez becoming glaringly obvious over the course of the campaign. Turan brings with him plenty of footballing prowess, as well as goals and assists in abundance, something which would be more than Welcome at the Emirates.

With Barcelona likely to add top players once again this summer, Turan could well be surplus to requirements and represents a realistic signing for the Gunners and their everlasting manager Arsene Wenger – if he remains in charge.

Arsenal fans, what do you think? Would you take Turan? Let us know in the comments!
