Arsenal On Alert As Financial Troubles Could Force Club To Sell 13M Rated Turkish Playmaker

Arsenal are keeping tabs on attacking midfielder Orkun Kokcu’s situation at Feyenoord, according to Turkish news outlet Hurriyet.

The Gunners were interested in the Turkish international but the player opted to sign a new contract and stay in the Netherlands back in June.

However, Hurriyet claims that Feyenoord’s financial situation has deteriorated during the global health crisis and they could well be open to selling Kokcu for a reasonable price.


The playmaker is reportedly valued at €15m (£13m) and his availability is also said to have attracted interest from the likes of Roma, Inter Milan and Lyon.

Whether Arsenal still need an attacking midfielder, it is up for debate. Martin Odegaard has shown some promising signs since his arrival on loan from Real Madrid but there is no guarantee that the Gunners will be able to sign him on a permanent basis.

Emile Smith Rowe has also become an established first-team player this season and signing another young playmaker could block his development.
