Many Arsenal fans and even fans of other clubs and neutrals agree Arsenal can do better than Theo Walcott on the right wing and considering the type of players that has been linked with moves to Arsenal this summer, it appears Wenger also agrees with this school of thought. We have been linked with the signing of Draxler, Gotzd, Mkhitaryan, Mahrez among others. All players who would have taken Walcott’s place on the right wing.
Although all of the aforementioned players seem out of reach for us, at least for now, it is not a surprise that reports from Spain this week are linking us with the signing of Turkey and Barca midfielder Ardan Turan. The former Atletico Madrid and Galatasaray star has always been linked with Arsenal and according to recent reports, he could be on his way to Arsenal this summer.
Reports claim Arsenal have agreed personal terms with the player and that Barca are ready ti accept a bid of €29m for the player they paid €30m for just a little less than 18 months ago. Reports went as far as claiming Arsenal have had a medical booked for the player for this Wednesday.
Although it is unclear if this is true but Turan will certainly be an improvement on Theo Walcott. His versatility will be of massive use for Arsenal when we have the annual injury crisis.
