Manchester United and Arsenal face serious competition for ‘new Ozil’

CalhanogluManchester United and Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have had to deal with increased competition for one of their prime transfer targets.

Bayer Leverkusen ace Hakan Calhanoglu, hailed as the ‘new Mesut Ozil’ and ‘free-kick king’, has been linked with a transfer to Arsenal this year, whilst Manchester United are also reported to be keen on the Turkish international.

The Bundesliga side are bracing themselves for offers for the talented 21-year-old and things have just turned up a notch, with Barcelona also said to be in the hunt for the excelling attacking midfielder.

Barcelona are expected to be busy in January, where their transfer ban expires, and are in desperate need of recruits after a difficult start to the season- which has only been made worse by an injury to superstar Lionel Messi.

Calhanoglu is on their radar, which could prove problematic to the Premier League sides interested in his services.

United and Arsenal fans, how much will Calhanoglu sell for? Let us know in the comments below!
