Arsenal Transfer News: Burak Yilmaz Open To Gunners Move

Burak Yilmaz

Morning Gooners. We’ve got a week left for Arsene Wenger to potentially save our season but the transfer gossip is thin on the ground today.

But one interesting piece comes from the Mirror, who claim Trabzonspor goal-machine Burak Yilmaz would accept a move to Arsenal should he be given the opportunity.

I must admit, I know little about Yilmaz and haven’t heard of any interest from Arsenal regarding the player until now, but the Mirror say that both AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund are also tracking him as well as several other top European clubs.

Yilmaz is quoted as saying he’s not looking to leave current club Trabzonspor this month, but when he does leave he “would accept a transfer to Arsenal”. Here’s the quote from the Mirror:

“I am a Trabzonspor player until the end of the season; if I were to move abroad I would want to move to a big club. I would accept a transfer to Arsenal,” he told Turkish State Television channel TRT1 .

That’s great mate, but do Arsenal even want you?! To be fair, his goal scoring record is incredible this season. 22 goals in just 17 games, and he bagged 19 goals in 30 games last season, so he certainly knows where the net is.

At 26-years-old he’s a good age as well, so perhaps he’s worth a look Arsene. Coming from the Turkish league, he won’t cost a fortune either, so he sounds right up your street. Only drawback is it seems we’d have to wait until the summer. We need striker now.

    The guy is good. I’ve seen two matches where he was involved and he was brilliant. If we can sign him that will be enough and we can off load Chamak and Park. Next season we must ensure that we secure work permit for Wellington Silva. That guy is an amazing talent. His style of play is very similar to that of Eden Hazard but he combine a lot of Brazilian with his style. Very skillfull player.
