After falling out of favour under former Arsenal boss Unai Emery, he featured 41 times in all competitions last season, in Mikel Arteta’s first full campaign in charge at the Emirates Stadium.

Should he move to Galatasaray, he would join a host of players with Premier League experience.

The Galatasaray squad includes the likes of former Newcastle defender DeAndre Yedlin, Crystal Palace left-back Patrick van Aanholt, one time Liverpool and Fulham forward Ryan Babel, and ex-West Brom striker Mbaye Diagne.

Takehiro Tomiyasu became Arsenal’s sixth signing of a busy summer on Deadline Day, his £19.8m arrival from Bologna taking the club’s transfer spend past £150m.
