Arsenal line up £25m Arda Turan bid

According to The Times , Arsenal accept that Alexis Sanchez and Ozil will leave this summer and Turan is "looking for one more big move as he approaches the end of his career".

"If that does happen, we're just speculating, but I think it would be hard to not approve that fight". A revised punishment of a $25,000 fine and 25 hours of community service was then proposed, with Bennett explaining that McGregor had six months to fulfill the community service, which could be done in either Las ...
