Benfica is pushing hard to beat Arsenal to sign midfielder

Orkun Kokcu, the Feyenoord midfielder, is attracting interest from both Benfica and Arsenal, with the Portuguese side showing confidence in their ability to compete with the Gunners for his signature.

Kokcu has been on Arsenal’s radar for some time, and this summer presents an opportune moment for him to seek a new challenge away from Feyenoord. Arsenal is aware that other top European clubs will also pursue his signing, intensifying the competition.

However, according to a report from Inside Futbol, Benfica has emerged as the primary contender to Arsenal in the race for Kokcu’s signature. It is worth noting that Liverpool is also reportedly interested in acquiring the midfielder.

Kokcu appears open to a change of environment, and now it falls upon his potential suitors to negotiate an agreement with Feyenoord to secure his services.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Having just won the Dutch league title, clubs will be keen on Kokcu, so we must step up our pursuit of his signature as fast as we can.

The midfielder will probably prefer a move to England over Portugal, but we must show we really want him in our squad before we can seal the deal.

If we hesitate, he will move to another club, which will be our loss.

Now the season is over, it’s time for the summer Arsenal quiz from our friends at Dublin Arsenal – It’s always a laugh and helps while away the time while we wait for Arsenal’s first signings to come in!

  1. Much cheaper alternative to Rice plus he comes with a winning mentality. I say YES!!

  2. They are reports West Ham is preparing not to accept anything under £100 mill for Rice, with United showing interest and a willingness to pay over the odds.

    Arsenal should walkway and return for Zubimendi or Manuel Ugarte to go with the Caicedo kid if the madness continues.

    1. Looks like another Mudrykh situation, anything above 100m it’s better we look for other alternatives. Infact we should act fast to get zubimendi because I believe we will let go of el neny and the other Belgian guy.
