Fenerbahce have placed a €25m price tag on playmaker Arda Guler. Liverpool and Arsenal are keen on signing the 17-year-old attacker, who has been touted as Mesut Ozil’s long-term heir. The market has picked up the pace, with big teams plucking out top youngsters from smaller teams.
English teams, in particular, have seen an influx of moves for youngsters who are touted as possible superstars of the future. The big English teams have been keen on adding prodigious talents to their Under-19, Under-23 and first teams and have extensively scouted teenagers from all over the world.
For example, Arsenal recently signed Sao Paulo attacker Marquinhos for a small fee, while Liverpool and Man City have done similar business. One footballer on the radar of clubs such as Arsenal and Liverpool is Fenerbahce star Arda Guler, who had his breakthrough campaign with the Turkish giants in 2021/22.
The Turkish attacker’s displays have made him one of the most sought-after talents in Europe. The Turkish club have set a €25m price tag on Arda after reportedly receiving a bid from Lyon worth only €10m. The Turkish club know the qualities of their talent and do not want to let him leave on the cheap.
The price tag seems reasonable financially, with heavy interest coming from PL teams. The Gunners have been keen on signing the Turkish attacker, as the Spanish manager wants to add more talented teenagers to the setup below the first team.
