Thursday, October 10
- Arsenal are considering a move for Feyenoord teenager Orkun Kokcu
- It’s thought Kokcu could be signed for around £20million
- Fenerbahce have opened talks to sign Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil
- Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi has discussed his next move
Arsenal are one of the Premier League teams monitoring Hwang Hee-chan after his recent impressive outing in the Champions League.
Hwang scored Red Bull Salzburg’s first goal in last week’s 4-3 defeat against Liverpool and has caught the eye of several English teams.
Arsenal’s London rivals Crystal Palace are another team linked with the South Korean international, who is under contract until the end of next season.
With Hwang approaching the final 18 months of his contract and the forward’s form peaking, it is unsurprising that so many clubs are interested in him.
Orkun Kokcu targeted
Arsenal are considering a move for Feyenoord teenager Orkun Kokcu.
That’s according to the Daily Mail, who claim the Gunners are ‘closely monitoring’ the 18-year-old midfielder.
It’s reported that Unai Emery is interested in signing a replacement for Mesut Ozil, who earns £350,000 per week, and believes Kokcu could be signed for around £20million.
Kokcu is a regular for Jaap Stam’s Feyenoord, scoring six goals and providing four assists in 25 appearances.
Mesut Ozil exit
Fenerbahce have opened talks to sign Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil.
Ozil, the highest-paid player in the history of the club, has seen just 71 minutes of Premier League action under Unai Emery this season.
And Turkish outlet Takvim claim Fenerbahce want to take Ozil on loan in the new year.
The Daily Mirror report that Ozil believes there is no way back for him at Arsenal but would need to dramatically reduce his £350,000 weekly wage.
Shkodran Mustafi transfer
Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi feels the next move could be the most important of his career as he looks to “write a positive chapter again”.
Mustafi, who joined from Valencia in August 2016, started both of the Gunners’ Europa League ties, as well as the 5-0 Carabao Cup win over Nottingham Forest.
However, the German centre-back has yet to feature in the Premier League this season, having been expected to leave during the summer transfer window.
“There were talks about leaving the club in the summer, but there was no option that suited everyone. Arsenal had some demands too,” Mustafi told Der Spiegel. “The next move is extremely important for me to be able to write a positive chapter again.”
