Arsenal frontrunners to land Fenerbahce prodigy Arda Guler

The Gunners are known for going under the radar and signing some hidden gems in the transfer window.

As per Turkish media, Arsenal are frontrunners to land Fenerbahce midfielder Arda Guler.

The 17-year-old’s contract is set to expire at the end of the 2024/25 campaign.

He has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Turkey. Guler has represented Turkey at Under-17 level, winning 10 caps and scoring four goals.

His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Arsenal.

The Gunners are looking to sign a midfielder and have identified the 17-year-old as potential transfer target.

Mikel Arteta is a firm fan of Fenerbahce midfielder and Arsenal could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.


The Super Lig player is highly talented and he has a big future ahead of himself.

According to the report, “Arsenal are making a serious bid for Fenerbahce superkid Arda Guler. The midfielder only turned 17 in February, but has already made a name for himself in Turkey. Arsenal are far from the only side interested in the teenager, with Liverpool among the other clubs in the mix. However, Aksam says Arsenal have ‘started the transfer process’ to bring Guler to London. While the youngster has been dubbed “the Turkish Messi” by fans, there have also been plenty of comparisons to Mesut Ozil. Guler started just twice in the Super Lig last season, making a further 10 appearances from the bench. However, he was still able to score three goals and notch several assists.”

Euro Football Rumours

Arsenal will have to present a really enticing offer to bring Fenerbahce to the negotiating table. They have the resources to tempt them but it will be interesting to see if they are willing to overpay for the player.

The Turkish giants would be wise to keep the Turkey international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.

Good signing for Arsenal?

It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.

Signing the 17-year-old in the summer transfer window would be a masterstroke from Arteta.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in London.

How strong that interest is and whether Arsenal will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
