'Give us 20m': Some fans react after title-winning speedster issues Arsenal come-get-me plea

A number of Arsenal fans have given their thoughts on the news that Ridvan Yilmaz wants to join the Gunners.

Arsenal are believed to be in the market for a new left-back this summer, and the left-sided 19-year-old is one of the most highly rated young players in the Turkish top flight.

Speaking on TRT Spor, via Fanatik, the teenager commented on his call-up, before speaking on his ambition to play in England and also make his club some money in the process.

Celtic strike Premier Sports deal - is this the "additional value" we've been waiting for?

And when it came to the English club he wants to join, Yilmaz admitted his heart was set on the Gunners.

“I learned on the live broadcast that I was selected for the national team,” he said.

“It was a dream for me to be selected for the national team and it has come true.

“I want to leave Besiktas by making money. My heart is in favour of England. I want to play for Arsenal, the Premier League team.”

The Gunners will finish this season with Kieran Tierney as their only senior left-back, having allowed Sead Kolasinac to rejoin Schalke on loan in January.

Yilmaz has certainly done well this term with Besiktas, hence the provisional call-up to the Turkish national side for the Euros.

Here’s what some Besiktas fans have made of the 19-year-old’s comments:
