Agent confirms Atletico has made a bid for Arsenal target

Arsenal is set to miss out on Lille star, Zeki Celik, as his agent has just confirmed that he has an offer from Atletico Madrid.

The Turkey international has been linked with a move to Arsenal for much of this transfer window as they appear ready to cash in on Hector Bellerin.

The future of Bellerin remains unresolved and he could still leave within the last days of the transfer window.

If that happens, Arsenal will need a player to replace him and Celik was one of their targets.

However, they are not the only club who has watched the full-back that won Ligue 1 last season.

Spanish champions, Atleti also wants him and they appear to be more serious than the Gunners.

They have already tabled an offer to Lille and have offered him personal terms as well.

His agent confirms this in a recent interview with Haber Global via Transfrmarketweb when he said:

“It is true that Atletico are interested in Zeki Celik, there is the proposal. We are evaluating it”

The report claims that in France, they believe it is almost a certainty that he will leave to join the Spanish champions.

    You want Max Aarons, Kieran Trappier, Emerson Royal, Sergino Dest and now Celik, who do you really want to sign?

      I think the problem is you believe everything you read in the media/blogs.

    2. Reg says:

      This information has not come from Arsenal – just the players’ agents and is therefore suspect.

    3. Simon R. Karbah says:

      Any of them that is available for a reasonable price, Ben.

Where is Bissouma Aouar a real right back..a real goal scorer…The Krumkes have never cared about winning, their franchise don’t win and they keep getting richer. We will never win with them owning this club, we need the Quatari,s , Ek Dangote….some body God help us.

    Arsenal have got interest in quite a few young defenders across Europe and as of July, 2021,here is how they were ranked by fifa : Dest#7,Saliba #8,Tavares#21,Relik#27,NDiicka#30, Aarons#40,Fofana #42 and Lamptey#55. Saliba is the second highest ranked player on that list just behind Sergio Dest and 13 spots higher than Nuno Tavares, yet he’s not good enough to play for Arsenal under Arteta. Unbelievable but true. Despite his efforts for Nice and making the France Olympics squad, Saliba still could not make an Arsenal Squad. Currently, Saliba continues to impress for Marseille in the Ligue l(they are also in champions league) , but ,just not good enough for Arteta ,who favours Kolasinac, Chambers Holding and Mari. I just don’t get it. Saliba has made the France under 21 squad this week and is still rated that bad by Arteta. Wait, am I knots or probably there is some underlying issues. It doesn’t seem that Arteta and Edu like French footballers. The time has come to recall Saliba and Mavropanos from loan , buy Tomiyasu and get rid of Kolasinac, Chambers, Holding and Mari at any cost ,even if it’s for nothing. Arsenal surely will be better off without them. Arsenal should definitely secure the services of Houssem Aouar to add some creativity and depth to the midfield too.
