Arsenal go head-to-head with Sevilla for Feyenoord midfielder Orkun Kokcu

Arsenal are going head-to-head with Sevilla for Feyenoord midfielder Orkun Kokcu.

The Daily Star says the 19-year-old has enjoyed a fine campaign for Feyenoord this campaign, starring the Europa League.

The youngster first broke into the first-team last season but has taken on a more key role this year round.

Some of his best skills are his technical abilities on the ball as well as his passing range.

But what has stood him head and shoulders above many his age is his surprising level of tactical strength.

Many have noted his off-the-ball and positioning to be beyond his years as a central midfielder.

Across the season, the Turkey Under-21 international has made 35 appearances in all competitions, scoring three and assisting six.
