Turkish giants ready to steal key Arsenal target from under Wenger’s nose

There’s a huge season on the horizon for Arsenal and manager Arsene Wenger, who is under extreme pressure to add to his squad ahead of a big campaign in the Premier League.

Despite signing a new two-year deal this summer, the pressure remains on the Frenchman to starting bringing home results as fan frustration continues to bubble under the Emirates.

The Frenchman is yet to make his move in the transfer window and he could be about to be beaten to one of his big targets, which could upset Gunners fans if true.

According to Turkish newspaper Milliyet, Besiktas are ready to swoop in and make a move for Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Hakan Calhanoglu.

According to the outlet, a £25million figure is being discussed, with AC Milan also thought to be keen on bringing in the Turkish international over the summer.

But for Arsenal, this would mark a huge downturn in transfer hopes if they can’t seal a deal and the Gunners fans lining the bar here in the pub desperately want to see a big player come in over the coming weeks- with the exciting Calhanoglu being the sort of player that would add much-needed flair to this Arsenal side.
