Arsenal reportedly interested in £20 Million rated Turkey U21 midfielder
The media is reporting that Arsenal has joined the race to sign Feyernoord’s £20 Million rated midfielder Orkun Kokcu.
Apparently a number of top European clubs are also monitoring the 18-year-old. But the Daily Mail did not name them, unfortunately.
Kokcu is supposed to be one of the hottest talents in Dutch football but I must confess, I have never heard of him. From what I can gather he is a regular for Feyenoord and is gaining a reputation as a hot prospect.
The teenager certainly fits the Arsenal profile but then so do a lot of young players. I suspect that he will be one of a number of youngsters that will be linked with a move to the Emirates over the next few months.
I had a look at a video of him over on youtube here and he certainly looks a talent but then short clip videos can make anyone look world-class.
The bottom line is that Kokcu is definitely talented and this is one to keep a lazy eye on. You never know.
