Reported Arsenal target Orkun Kokcu has told Feyenoord he wants to leave the Dutch club this summer.

The Eredivisie was cancelled last week due to the coronavirus pandemic with Feyenoord missing out on next season’s Champions League after finishing in third place.

Feyenoord manager Dick Advocaat admitted in March that the Gunners were keen on a move for the 19-year-old but are yet to make an offer.

However, the club’s sporting director Frank Arnesen suggested last week that there are four clubs interested in Kokcu, including Sevilla:

“There are no offers. But we are aware of Sevilla’s interest. 

“We have held meetings, and there are four clubs interested in him, one of them is Sevilla.

“There is nothing official yet, and no offers have been received.”

The young midfielder still has three years left to run on his Feyenoord contract and has supposedly made it clear after the season was abandoned that he does not attend to sign a new deal with the Dutch side.

Arsenal have been long linked with a move for the Turkey Under-21 international and if reports are to be believed then the Gunners have been given the green light to make an offer for his services when the transfer window opens.
