Arsenal reportedly had scouts present at the San Siro for big derby match between Inter Milan and AC Milan.
According to Turkish Football, the Gunners were there to take a look at AC Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu, who performed the 90 minutes in his side’s 4-2 defeat to Inter Milan.
The Turkey international was massively linked with Arsenal back in January by the Daily Mirror, and it looks he remains a player on the north London giants’ radar ahead of the summer.
Hakan Calhanoglu hasn’t always been at his best in his time in Serie A, but previously seemed a real talent in the Bundesliga with Hamburg and Bayer Leverkusen.
At the age of 26, the playmaker could still progress again after a demanding spell in Italy, and it may be that the Gunners is just the right club for him.
Hakan Calhanoglu looks like his playing style could be an excellent fit for what Mikel Arteta is trying to do at the Emirates Stadium, and his presence could be significant after last summer’s departure of Aaron Ramsey and the failure of Dani Ceballos to make an impact while at the club on loan this term.
