Back in 2020, Arsenal were linked with an incredibly talented midfielder named Orkun Kokcu.Voetbal International claimed the Gunners had been eyeing the 21-year-old “for a long time”.More recently, former Feyenoord ace Ali Boussaboun tipped Kokcu to join a club “such as Arsenal”.Photo by Herman Dingler/BSR Agency/Getty ImagesThe 42-year-old also suggested the Turkey international could cost between £40m and £50m.7 Genuinely Fan-Owned Football Clubs“Kokcu looks good,” Boussaboun told RTV Rijnmond. “Perhaps (he won’t settle at) the absolute top but certainly at the ‘sub-top’. Clubs such as Arsenal.“Kokcu may be worth fifty or sixty million euros in the future.”Now, it looks as though Feyenoord might be willing to accept a significantly lower sum for Kokcu.Tuttojuve have reported that the playmaker now has a price tag of just €15m (£12.5m).The Italian outlet claimed Juve’s scouts spoke to Kokcu’s father, Halis-Sibel, who looks after the player’s interests.The Bianconeri apparently made an approach, though there haven’t been any negotiations.Arsenal could do with bolstering their midfield ranksMohamed Elneny’s contract runs out in summer, while Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ future is also uncertain.And Kokcu would be a great shout, though many clubs are bound to be after him.Kokcu burst onto the scene during the 2019-20 campaign, but his form dropped off somewhat the following season.But since Arne Slot took the Feyenoord reins, the Turkey international is now living up to his potential once again.Kokcu is now thriving as a deep-lying midfielder, and has nine goals and eight assists to his name in 2021-22.Photo by Pim Waslander/Soccrates/Getty Images“He can do anything with the ball”In November 2020, Behind the Lines spoke to scout Ali Can Kutlu about Kokcu.“Orkun is a great, great central attacking midfielder who can also play central mid,” said Kutlu.“What stands out most is his technical abilities. His ball control, his first touch, his passes; long passes especially.“His short passes are great too, but he is also a great long passer who can play through balls over the defensive line.“He can do anything with the ball he wants, he’s very smart so he knows what to do as well. His poor decisions are very rare to see.“Also, his long shots are pretty good, he can score goals from outside the box which makes him very valuable not only as a playmaker but also as a proper attacking player.” Have something to tell us about this article?
