Feyenoord coach Advocaat admits Arsenal interest in Kokcu 'true'

Feyenoord coach Dick Advocaat concedes Arsenal's interest in midfielder Orkun Kokcu is "true".

The Gunners have already opened talks with Feyenoord over a potential £23m deal for Kokcu .

Advocaat, who had a short stint in the Premier League as Sunderland boss, has now addressed the rumours surrounding his player.

“It seems that what I read is true," he told Fox Sports. “But no one has yet come to Feyenoord [to make an offer or hold talks]."

Asked whether or not he felt Kokcu could adapt to Premier League football with the Gunners, the 72-year-old replied: “I think he fits everywhere."
