Bayer Leverkusen’s free kick specialist Hakan Çalhanoğlu is being heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, and the Emirates is among his potential destinations, according to the Daily Mail.
The Turkish international has been superb since joining Leverkusen, and has become known for his unbelievable free kicks.
At just 21-years-old he is only going to improve, and could add a different facet to our game.
We are apparently facing competition from Manchester City for his signature, but the presence of fellow Turk Mesut Özil could possibly swing things in our favour.

Another attacking midfielder is not exactly what we need, but a dead ball specialist could be a fantastic investment.
We currently have a number of players who are adept at taking free kicks, but none who truly excel – not in the same way Çalhanoğlu does anyway.
Check out a few of his videos below:
The swerve on this free kick is incredible! Who would even dare to shoot from that distance?
Top corner every time!
I doubt even two keepers could have saved that one.
I am a huge fan of his, and was disappointed when he moved from Hamburg to Bayer Leverkusen for just £10m.
What do you reckon Gooners? Is there a place for him at Arsenal?
