Arsenal fans react as Fiorentina reportedly eyes £10.25m loan deal

Fiorentina are reportedly closing in on a loan deal with an obligation to sign Lille star Zeki Celik – and Arsenal fans have reacted on Twitter.

Celik, 24, has been constantly linked with a move to the Premier League. The Evening Standard said in June that Arsenal are looking at Celik.

Arsenal are of course, looking at signing a new right-back. Hector Bellerin continues to be touted as a possible departure from the Gunners.

Turkey international Celik has been excellent for Lille. Helping the French side topple PSG last season, he has clocked up 105 games since 2018.

Now, reports state that Arsenal could miss out on Celik. Fiorentina are reportedly closing in on the signing of Celik, initially on loan.

What are Arsenal fans saying about Gattuso signing Celik?

Calum Chambers has been playing on the right of defence, but he is naturally a centre-back. Bellerin could still leave before next Tuesday.

Cedric Soares is another option, as is Ainsley Maitland-Niles. But the latter is prefers midfield while Portugal international Soares is hardly the answer.

A new right-back is a must, then. Arsenal have already spent the best part of £130million, so Celik’s bargain price tag has seen Gunners fans react.

Many Arsenal fans have questioned why their club are not also in talks for Ligue 1 champion Celik – especially at a fee of just £10.25million.
