Brazilian full-back Andre Santos might not remain the single player Arsenal brought in this season from Turkey for long, as Trazbonspor star Burak Yilmaz declared his interest in Arsenal publicly.
According to Turkey’s prolific striker he would only leave the home league for a transfer to a big club abroad, and a move to the Emirates Stadium would be favored by the 26-year-old attacker.
“I am a Trabzonspor player until the end of the season; if I were to move abroad I would want to move to a big club. I would accept a transfer to Arsenal,” he told Turkish State Television channel TRT1 .
Although he’s one of the most important players in the Turkish national team, that doesn’t count for much these days after they failed to qualify for the Ukrainian and Poland Euro 2012.
The in-form striker is the current top scorer in Turkey having scored a whooping 22 goals in 21 games, and even though his club is only on the 6th place in the league his top contender for the top goal scorer title only has 9 goals so far, and former Premiership star Elmander has 8.
With these stats Yilmaz might be an amazing addition to Arsenal’s attacking force which would be horribly shaken if Robin Van Persie would get injured.
