The Daily Mirror, via one of its publications, disclosed that new Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta wants to bring Hakan Calhanoglu from sleeping Italian Serie A giants AC Milan.
Hakan Calhanoglu is a Turkish international rated at around €18m and a loan move to Arsenal could be a possibility for him with the Rossoneri open to the idea of the player leaving the club this winter window.
Hakan Calhanoglu might not be willing to leave first-team duties at AC Milan to move to Arsenal where he won’t be a guaranteed starter due to the presence of Mesut Ozil.

The German has been the first choice attacking midfielder since Arteta took over last month and his form has been on the up since the Spaniard was appointed into the role.
Hakan Calhanoglu signed for AC Milan from Bayer Leverkusen in the German Bundesliga and has scored 14 goals plus 24 assists in over a century of games for the Italians.
The 25-year-old has played 109 games for AC Milan.
In 18 games in all competitions this season, the Turkish playmaker has two goals and one assist.
His strikes came against struggling teams like Leece and Brescia in the lower end of the Italian top-flight table.
