Arsenal should pull out the stops to sign this Turkish wonderkid?

Fenerbahce wonderkid Arda Guler has emerged as a transfer target for Arsenal, with reports suggesting that the 18-year-old could be available for a bargain price of £15 million.

Mikel Arteta’s side is in need of reinforcements in wide areas and midfield, making Guler an attractive prospect due to his versatility and young age.

Guler, who was born in Ankara, Turkey, started his youth career at Genclerbirligi before signing a professional contract with Fenerbahce in January 2021. He was given the coveted number 10 shirt at the start of the 2022-23 season, a significant honor in Fenerbahce’s history as it was worn by club legend Alex de Souza.

The young midfielder has already made 29 appearances for Fenerbahce, scoring three goals and providing an assist this season. His performances have caught the attention of fans and scouts alike, with one fan even displaying a banner calling him “The Turkish Messi” during a game against Galatasaray.

Guler’s contract with Fenerbahce runs until 2025, but he has a reported release clause of £15 million, which has attracted interest from several top clubs. Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain are other names which have been floated in the news circles.

With Guler’s impressive performances, potential, and affordable price tag, acquiring his services could be a smart move for any club looking to strengthen their squad. As the transfer window opens, Arsenal will likely be swift in their pursuit of new signings, and Guler could emerge as a promising addition to their ranks.

They could even sign him and loan him out to a Premier League side to get a more polished product at the end of next season. Whatever happens in the future, it would be exciting to sign one of the hottest young properties in Turkey at present.

  1. Have had enough of these “talents” signed by some dinosaur just wasting space and money. Lets be part of the revolution, by hiring exciting impact players and we had a decent no 2 finish. Another 350K/week 2.0 in the making! Mikel should stay away

  2. Let’s hope this one will not convince himself that he is the biggest victim in the world like his fellow countryman before him.

  3. Loose cannon. We have had a “close second” with these young “talents” in our team so far. They are energetic, listen in training and get results. Now other teams are looking for young players to join they’re ranks. And you say “Mikel should stay away”??

  4. That’s why Arsenal is not rated a big club. Because, they don’t prioritize their needs. Now that Arsenal is back in the champions league, the quality of the squad depth must be addressed, instead of inquiring about Havertz, Castagne and this youngster.I really thought that not having champions league football was a deterrent for attracting quality players. I hope Edu and Arteta get it right, because if they don’t, they should be sacked period. No more excuses , the time of accepting mediocrity is over. If you want to emulate Manchester city, you must invest in quality players to have at least two in every position of the team. Arsenal must be ruthless and ambitious and get rid of Holding, Cedric, Mari, Maitland-Niles, Lokonga, Tavares, Pepe, Elneny, Jorginho, Matt Smith and Runarsson at any cost. They’re not good enough and you’re lowering the wage bill too. Also sell players like Xhaha, Tierney, Bolagun and Patino who wants to leave. These funds will help to invest in quality additions to the squad depth. Arsenal need (2)defensive midfielders(Rice and Caicedo), a right back (Simakan) ,a center back (Tapsoba), an attacking midfielder (Szoboszlai) and different profile striker (Hojlund).

    1. Furthe rto MY abovepost, I DO notice that Wayne is clearly an educated person who canboth write ands punctuate well.

      My conclusion is that he quite possibly lives abroad, though being British and having a detached view of our club
      I repeat that he is NOT imo, a REAL fan of our club at all but quite probably a fan of the Prem as a whole, as what he actually said about our club was very sound sense.

      He plainly knows a deal about our club but that knowledge alone does NOT make him a REAL fan. He IS though, certainly a fan of Prem football. And educated in using English better than most on here.

  5. If our coaches think this guy has promise, then we should go for him. While we buy players for immediate success, we’d also invest in the future. The young, unknown of today will be the superstars of tomorrow

  6. Am disgusted with Arsenal spotting good players for other teams to go for them am wondering which players will play in champions league if we cant soot and buy!

  7. If we are to spot then we should buy experienced players like Vlahovic, Mbappe,Rice, and Victor Osmen if we are to compete in Champions league
