Arsenal are reportedly in discussions over a transfer deal for AC Milan attacking midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu, who can leave the San Siro this winter.
The Turkey international winger has long looked a top talent in the middle of the park, having become well-known for being a set-piece specialist with a collection of wonder goals from his time in the Bundesliga.
Though things haven’t worked out for Hakan Calhanoglu at AC Milan, and it now looks like he could be poised for an exit this winter.
Arsenal will be hoping to take advantage of the 25-year-old’s availability, and sources in Italy suggest initial discussions have taken place with the player’s agent.
The Gunners are undoubtedly short of quality in the middle of the park at the moment, with the likes of Matteo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka having unconvincing seasons.
The club also miss the presence of Aaron Ramsey in this line-up after his summer move to Juventus, with loan signing Dani Ceballos not proving much of a replacement after an underwhelming campaign so far.
Hakan Calhanoglu might not be the most exciting name Arsenal could sign this January, but in truth, most fans would probably take him right now.
