Arsenal launch bid for 29-year-old Barcelona midfielder



According to reports in Spain the Gunners have launched a bid for 29-year-old Midfielder Arda Turan.

The midfielder joined Barcelona last Summer in a deal believed to have been worth £34million. Turan joined the Catalan side after becoming one of the most sought after midfielders in Europe after performing extremely well for his old club Atletico Madrid.

Turan signed for Barcelona last Summer but had to wait until January to play for the club because of the FIFA-imposedd transfer ban which Barcelona had to face.

However, since being cleared to play the midfielder has failed to make an impact and secure a spot in the starting lineup. Having started only 9 times in the league last season.

Spanish Outlet Don Balon reported that the Gunners have already tabled a bid to sign the midfielder.

Wenger is extremely keen on bolstering his squad in what could be his last season at Arsenal, in which he would obviously want to leave on a high by securing the Premier League title one last time.

However the Gunners will be facing competition from clubs like Dortmund & Galatasaray though.
