After watching countless hours of football over the past few days and having my scouting jacket on carefully watching ever game in the euros for a possible new signing or two a few players have caught my eye.
Valon Behrami, Podolski, Schweinsteiger, Orlando Engelaar,Volkan Demirel ,Wesley Sneijder, Ibrahim Afellay, David Villa, Gökhan Inler, Eren Derdiyok, Servet Çetin have all impressed me and could all do a job at Arsenal. But 1 player has stood out for me as a possible star of the future and a player ready made for Arsenal and thats Galatasarays 21 yr old Turkish Winger Arda Turan. Ive seen this guy play a few times in the champions league and even before the start of the euros I rated him highly,But after scoring the winning goal for Turkey in the 90th min I’m convinced this guy can be the player we have been looking for since we lost Robert Pires.
Arda is a 2 footed winger who can play on the left or the right with an eye for goal. He is the closest thing to Robert Pires I have seen. The way he cuts in off the flanks and opens the play up is just typical Arsenal style. He can also play just behind the strikers.
Newcastle have been linked with a summer more for £11m rated Arda but from what I have seen his style of play would be perfect for us. Lets hope that Wenger is taking notes…
