Arsenal In Race With Serie A Giants To Land 18 Year Old Turkish Centre Back

Arsenal are tracking Galatasaray centre-back Ozan Kabak, according to reports in Turkey.

The 18-year-old only made his senior debut last season and has played just 12 games of first-team football. However, despite his inexperience, he has become a regular starter under manager Fatih Terim this campaign.

The Gunners are not the only team who are following Kabak with Inter Milan also believed to be keen on the teenager.

Galatasaray are not looking to sell the defender, though, and want to tie down the player for the long term.

Kabak’s current deal expires in 2020 but the Turkish side are said to be lining up a new five-year contract in order to ward off potential interest.

The centre-half is yet to be capped for Turkey, and his lack of game time at senior level would likely mean he would be signed by Arsenal with the future in mind, rather than becoming an option for the first team straight away.
