Arsenal look set for a busy old summer with plenty of players likely to be linked with moves to the Emirates Stadium. A recent report claimed that the agent of Hakan Calhanoglu had been approached by the Gunners.
The AC Milan ace is out of contract during the summer and both Arsenal and Chelsea ate thought to have made advances to the player’s agent over a summer move (Sky Sports Italia).
The Turkey international has scored seven goals and registered 11 assists during 2020/21 and could be a useful addition on a free transfer during the summer window.
Calhanoglu typically operates as a No.10, although he isn’t averse to playing in other advanced roles. Since checking in at the San Siro he’s played 164 games and scored 30 goals.
The 27-year-old has played 55 times for Turkey and would want a pretty decent contract to leave AC Milan.
Sky Sports Italia claim that Calhanoglu wants £105,000-a-week to sign for a new club in the summer – with the player currently earning £85,000-a-week.
Following reports of Arsenal making an approach, we looked at what the Gunners fan base are saying about the prospect of a new signing.
Joe Willock is better than Calhanoglu ffs.

Seems to have revived his career this season. Wouldn't fully be against it, though they're much better options out there
