Blow for Arsenal as AC Milan enter into talks for 20 year-old target

AC Milan are claimed to have held talks over a deal to sign Feyernoord’s Orkun Kokcu, a player believed to be a target of both Tottenham and Arsenal.

The Gunners have been strongly linked with a move to sign the Turkish midfielder over the last two years, with reports in the DailyMail going back as far as 18 months knowing of our interest in his signature.

The Feyernoord star was just breaking into the first-team at that point, before eventually agreeing a new contract with his club before the end of the season.

The 20 year-old was initially believed to be most comfortable as a winger, but has taken on a more central role this season, and it would be interesting to see where his new club will look to get the best out of him.

AC Milan may well be that club, after the DailyMail cited Italian reports stating that his representatives had held talks with the club over a future move.

His current club isn’t believed to be in the best place financially, and the Mail also added that should they fail to qualify for Europe they could well be forced into selling cheaply.

Could Kokcu be the exact type of player the club will be looking at this summer?

    O T

    Probably on J A elsewhere and I’ve missed it but latest is Luiz is not to be offered a contract extension, and Xhaka to leave.

    Apologies if old news.

        The media

        They decide who should leave and who should be signed for the clubs

          Hi John.

          I’m a bit above posting every half arsed “media” story that is floated re’ comings and going’s at our place.

          A couple of Twitter feeds which I have found “ useful” in the past popped up.

          Given that, I thought folk may be interested- particularly if the Xhaka story has any legs.

          Luiz was correct no ?

          By the way – DID YOU KNOW, FREDDIE STARR ATE MY HAMSTER !

        They talked about a swap with the fellow Swiss Denis Zakria of Broussia Mon.
        I think, it would be useful to both clubs, considering contractual situation and that Xhaka would most likely want back to Broussis or Geemany in general and no one to provide good cash due to Covid.

        Hi Ken.

        See below reply to John.

        Also , Ornstein is usually fairly reliable – as much as anyone can be before the predicted event actually occurs .

    Sincere apologies Ken.

    Didn’t intend to fire off 2 x replies to you – thought I got shot of one before sending.

    I’ve had a nightmare here.

    Enjoy your Saturday.
