Arsenal face fight for Turkish goal sensation

Published Add your comment

Arsenal will face a fight to sign goal sensation Burak Yilmaz, as both Fulham and Sevilla want him.


The Trabzonspor striker has been in incredible form this season in the Turkish Super Lig, scoring 32 goals in just 30 games and this form has attracted the interest of Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, according to talkSPORT.


The report claims the Emirates Stadium tactician had joined Fulham counterpart Martin Jol in planning a summer bid for the Turkey international.


Now the La Liga side have entered the fray and are reportedly readying a £5million offer once the transfer window reopens.


The reported interest points towards Arsenal looking to add to their attacking department for next season, in a bid to avoid a repeat of the disastrous start they made to the current season.


The Gunners were saved by captain Robin van Persie’s scoring exploits this term, as he has scored 26 of their 63 league goals this season.
