Arsenal will reportedly watch midfielder Tokoz days after he helped Turkey stun France

Turkey produced a shock 2-0 win over world champions France on Saturday and Dorukhan Tokoz played a starring role.

Arsenal will send a scout to watch Turkish international midfielder Dorukhan Tokoz when his side face Iceland tomorrow night.

According to Turkish outlet Fotospor, Turkey’s 2-0 win over world champions France on Saturday night has caught the attention of many clubs around the world.

On that occasion, Tokoz played in the engine room and helped dominate Manchester United ace Paul Pogba as Les Bleus Euro 2020 qualification hopes took a wobble.

The report says that Tokoz would cost 25 million euros (£22.3 million), should Arsenal be so impressed on their scouting mission that they want to add him to their midfield ranks ahead of the forthcoming season.

It’s no secret that Arsenal can’t go out and splash Pogba-style money on new signings this summer – because of financial constraints and the fact they’re not in the Champions League.

 

For any midfielder out there, dominating one of the most talented players in world football and someone who plays for one of Arsenal’s historic rivals is a pretty good way to catch Unai Emery’s eye.

He obviously put in a big performance on the big occasion and now the question Arsenal want answered is whether he can do it on a consistent basis.

But if he can, £22.3 million isn’t that bad a price in the current market, for a 23-year-old who has plenty of room to improve and grow.
