Feyenoord are reportedly well aware that Orkun Kokcu is an Arsenal transfer target, as Mikel Arteta eyes the Turk as a long-term replacement for Mesut Oil.

The 19-year-old has impressed at De Kuip this season, producing three goals and registering six assists in 31 appearances before the Dutch season was curtailed by the coronavirus pandemic.

And Kokcu has emerged on Arsenal's radar, according to Goal, with Mesut Ozil out of contract in a year's time.

The German playmaker is set to leave at the end of his Emirates contract and so the attacking midfield role in Arteta's team will be vacant.

Kokcu, who can also play in a more defensive-minded central midfield role, has emerged as a feasible long-term successor to the World Cup winner.

His price will appeal to Arsenal as Goal claim he could be available for around £20million, which should be doable for the Gunners despite their financial issues, particularly if they sell players.

A move will even be possible even if the north London club miss out on Champions League qualification and the riches that would bring, it is claimed.

The player's thoughts on any move are not documented but he has previously rejected contract extensions at Feyenoord, who know Arsenal are keen on him and may be tempted to sell if they launch a bid.

Manchester United legend and former Feyenoord coach Jaap Stam said last month that Kokcu is capable of making the step up in England, having established himself as one of the best midfielders in the Netherlands even as a teenager.

Stam said: "He would need to adjust because the step to Arsenal and the Premier League is totally different when you compare it to Holland.

"The pace of the game, the quality, the intensity is a lot higher.

"But he has the ability. He is a player who has the personality to want to improve, he always wants to do better.

"He’s never happy with himself, he’s disappointed if he doesn’t score, or his passes aren’t good enough.

"When I joined Feyenoord, he hadn’t played a lot because everyone said he was too young.

"I put him in the first team and let him play most of the games, I trusted him and saw a lot of ability in him.

"Now he’s proving himself in Holland and is one of the best midfield players in the country.

"He’s certainly got the ability to make that step to the Premier League."

Arsenal have been warned that they will have to beat a number of clubs to sign Kokcu including Premier League rivals Chelsea

Voetbal International's Martijn Krabbendam said: “There has been an offer from Feyenoord, and he has refused.

“Feyenoord are offering something, and Kokcu wants more, you shouldn’t think that that boy is suddenly asking for millions.

“He’s a basic player and the salary is out of all proportion to what some of Feyenoord’s other players earn. Some of the boys on the bench are also earning more.

“Feyenoord will know that one of the greatest talents will have to be better rewarded. If they don’t approach each other, the club will have to think about selling the player, and that’s all there is to it.

“It’s no secret that Arsenal has already spoken to Kokcu’s agents, the Seville clubs are also very interested in the midfielder.

“Chelsea is still playing in the background. Also, the Italian clubs Atalanta Bergamo and AS Roma are still very interested.”
