With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Nurin Sahin’s move to the Premier League is in doubt after clubs in Italy entered the race.
Nuri Sahin’s proposed move to Arsenal is in serious doubt after Italian giants AC Milan and Inter Milan entered the race to sign him, according to talkSPORT.
The Turkish international is set to leave Real Madrid after boss Jose Mourinho advised he went on loan for a year in order to get some playing time, with the former Borussia Dortmund ace starting just two league games last season.
talkSPORT claim that Arsenal were close to signing Sahin over the weekend after agreeing a one-year loan deal with Madrid, while the Mirror suggested Manchester United and Tottenham were also in the running after the player supposedly agreed to join a mystery Premier League club on Friday.
However, the proposed move is now in serious doubt after the Milan duo also showed a late interest. AC Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri is set to improve his squad following the sales of Thiago Silva and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Paris St Germain, and is ready to try and persuade Sahin to choose a move to the San Siro, while Inter are keen to improve their squad after a disappointing Serie A showing last season.
Despite the increasing uncertainty over his future at the Bernabeu, Sahin joined up with the rest of the Real Madrid squad as they flew to America to continue their pre-season preparations but further talks over his future are due to take place.
While a move to Arsenal seemed a ‘done deal’ only a few days ago, interest from the Italian heavyweights as well as from Man Utd and Tottenham leaves the race wide open.
