Arsenal Actively Engaged in Negotiations to Sign €25m Rated Turkish Left-back, Club Willing to Pay Asking Price

Ferdi Kadioglu, Arsenal

According to latest reports in Turkey, Arsenal are involved in negotiations to sign Fenerbahce defender Ferdi Kadioglu in the summer transfer window. The Gunners are searching for a new left-back ahead of next season and the Turkish international’s outstanding skills and performances have attracted their attention.

Ferdi Kadioglu is one of most highly sought-after full-backs in the Turkish Super Lig at the moment. He has been a key component for Fenerbahce finishing second in the title race by just 3 points and is a permanent fixture in the starting XI, having made 51 appearances for the club across all competitions (stats via Transfermarkt).

The fight for the Premier League title this season went down till the last match-week, with the Gunners missing out by only two points. Despite putting up a spectacular display throughout the season, manager Mikel Arteta has failed to fixate on a left-back.

The Spanish boss has switched between the likes of Oleksandr Zinchenko, Jakub Kiwior and Takehiro Tomiyasu for the left-back role. To resolve this dilemma, the North Londoners are looking to bring in a new left-back in the upcoming transfer window.

As reported by Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri, Arsenal have opened talks to sign Fenebahce left-back Ferdi Kadioglu. The report claims that the Gunners are actively engaged in negotiations with the defender’s camp to strike an agreement over a potential deal.

However, the North London side are yet to begin talks with the Turkish side over a deal for the player. The English club are expected to make an official approach to Fenerbahce for the 24-year-old once the agreement on personal terms is finalised.

The Turkish international is also reportedly keen on joining the Gunners. Nevertheless, the journalist claims that a move to the Emirates is highly likely this summer. It is estimated that the Istanbul club are seeking around €25m for the full-back, which certainly falls within Arsenal’s budget.

Meanwhile, according to Turkish media publication Takvim (via Daily Cannon), the Super Lig side are seeking a fee close to €30m. The report claims that Arsenal officials will travel to Turkey in June to officially finalise a deal with Fenerbahce for Ferdi Kadioglu.

However, the North Londoners aren’t the only European club interested in securing the Turkish defender’s services. The PL side will face competition from Borussia Dortmund for a player who can play as a left-back, right-back, midfielder, or winger.
