Arsenal seek early deal with Feyenoord for Orkun Kokcu

Arsenal will seek to strike an early deal with Feyenoord for midfielder Orkun Kokcu.

The Gunners are keen on the 19 year-old, reports Fanatik, but face competition from Barcelona.

As such, Arsenal chiefs wish to reach terms with Feyenoord for Kokcu before the end of the season - or at least before the start of the summer's Euros.

Tied to Feyenoord until 2024, Kokcu is unlikely to come cheap. Indeed, an early asking price has been set at €20m by his Eredivisie club.

Arsenal are determined to bring Kokcu to London this year after scouting the midfielder regularly for the past 18 months.
