Arsenal have been linked with a deal to sign Arda Turan for a few seasons now, and this summer looks our best chance of landing him.
The midfielder played bit-part role at the Nou Camp last season, and has failed to earn a regular starting spot since joining from Atletico Madrid.
The 30 year-old is now expected to be sold in order to raise funds for an overhaul of the Barcelona squad, and a move to North-London is believed to be in the process.
The question however stems on where he would fit into the first-team should he move to Arsenal, with our new formation only accommodating three attacking players, two of which are currently occupied by Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
The futures of the duo are up in the air at present, with only one year remaining on their contracts, but their remains hope that both will extend their stays with the club, and contracts are believed to be on the table for the pair.
Arda Turan would not be suited to playing in the striker role (at least in my opinion), and for him to join you would expect him to play regularly, but who would lose their place?
Alexis looks most likely to depart the club in the current window, but is currently preoccupied with his international exploits, as he looks to try and win the Confederations Cup with Chile.
The Turan deal could well stem on the back of any potential departures of the duo, unless Arsene Wenger would be willing to play one of the three in a deeper or striker’s role, and while Sanchez has excelled in the role previously, he has expressed his wish to play in his preferred role behind the striker.
Could Wenger accommodate all three in the squad?
