Arsenal preparing bid to sign versatile £26m star with personal terms agreed – report

Arsenal are prepared to push for the signing of Fenerbahce defender Ferdi Kadioglu, according to Turkish outlet Star Gazetesi.

The Gunners have been constantly linked with the Turkish international, and there is reportedly an agreement over personal terms.

Arsenal are now ‘prepared to push’ with a formal offer to sign him.

Fenerbahce recently appointed Jose Mourinho as their new manager and the Portuguese tactician is keen to keep hold of the versatile full-back.

The Istanbul outfit are still open to the idea of parting ways with the 24-year-old. A fee in the region of £26 million could persuade to sanction his sale.

Arsenal have difficult task to sign Kadioglu after Mourinho’s arrival

The north London giants have identified Kadioglu as an ideal candidate to bolster the left-back position.

He has generally operated as a right-footed left-back and has caught the eye with his all-round attributes.

Kadioglu has a good passing range and likes to dribble past his opponents. He also has the ability to invert into midfield to provide line-breaking passes in the final third.

He is strong at tackling, winning duels and making clearances. Kadioglu has averaged almost seven ball recoveries per appearance.

He could prove a bargain signing for the Gunners, but the big question is whether Fenerbahce will grant his departure after Mourinho’s appointment as manager.

The 61-year-old could ask Fenerbahce’s hierarchy to keep hold of key players and be a stumbling block towards Arsenal securing a deal for Kadioglu this summer.
