Arsenal target Orkun Kokcu pens long-term Feyenoord contract

Feyenoord midfielder Orkun Kokcu has signed a new five-year contract.

The 19-year-old had been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal this summer, with manager Mikel Arteta looking for midfield reinforcements.

Kokcu was on Arteta's shortlist, while several reports had suggested technical director Edu was prioritising a deal for the youngster this summer.

The speculation has now well and truly been put to bed, however, and Arsenal must look elsewhere.
