Ferdi Kadioglu closing in on joining Arsenal, personal talks continue

Ferdi Kadioglu is reportedly getting closer to joining Arsenal in the summer transfer window, with talks over personal terms ongoing.

According to reputed Belgian journalist Sacha Tavolieri, Ferdi Kadioglu is the subject of interest from Arsenal. The Gunners are keen on signing a left-back in the summer transfer window. The Dutch-born utility man has thus emerged as a target, with the two parties holding talks over personal terms.

Who is Ferdi Kadioglu?

Ferdi Kadioglu has been one of the best players in the Turkish Super Lig this season. A native of Arnhem, the 24-year-old spent his formative years in the Netherlands and represented the country in age-group international football. However, he was also eligible to turn out for Turkiye and has picked the country as his national side, making his debut in June 2022.

The Dutch-born player is primarily a left-back but can also do a job as a holding midfielder and a right-back. This versatility has made the Turkish international a utility man for his club and country. Meanwhile, Kadioglu has enjoyed a solid 2023/24 campaign, chipping in with three goals and five assists in 49 appearances across all competitions.

Meanwhile, Kadioglu’s progress at Fenerbahce has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe, particularly from the Premier League. As we get closer to the summer transfer window, the Fenerbahce utility man’s next destination might be Arsenal.

London calling?

Arsenal’s interest in Ferdi Kadioglu is understandable. The Gunners are scouring the market for a left-back heading into the summer transfer window. While Oleksandr Zinchenko has blown hot and cold, Kieran Tierney, currently on loan at Real Sociedad, has no future at Arsenal, with the North London club ready to part ways with him in the coming weeks.

So, it behoves Arsenal to invest in a top-class left-back, with Kadioglu emerging as a viable target. Sacha Tavolieri has now revealed that the Dutch-born utility man is closing in on joining Arsenal in the summer transfer window, with talks over personal terms continuing.

However, the Gunners are yet to initiate discussions with Fenerbahce over the 24-year-old. So, it will be interesting to see if Arsenal can ramp up the talks to beat the competition to the Turkish international in the summer transfer window.
