Turan Linked to Arsenal Player Swap Deal

Turan Linked to Arsenal Player Swap Deal

The future of the Barcelona midfielder, Arda Turan, has generated column inches in the media this morning.

Two articles we stumbled upon offered different scenarios relating to the 30-year-old Turkish midfielder.

The first scenario, courtesy of the English red-top tabloid publication, The Star, is offering the suggestion that Barcelona, looking to bring the German midfielder Mesut Ozil to the Camp Nou, are looking to offer Ozil`s current club, Arsenal, Turan in a swap deal.

The second scenario, courtesy of the news source, Mundo Deportivo, offers the inference that Turan, in considering his future, is considering a lucrative move to the Chinese Super League.

Personally, returning to the first scenario, I`m having trouble accepting that Arsene Wenger would be interested in a player swap, particularly as Turan is now the wrong side of his thirtieth birthday, which, to me, indicates that a move to China could be the more likely option.
