AS: Sahin deal this week despite Liverpool interest

Despite media outlets stating that the Nuri Sahin loan saga would be sorted out at the weekend, AS are reporting that Sahin’s destination for the upcoming season will be decided and announced this week.

The Spanish paper declares that Arsenal are the club who have shown the most interest in obtaining the services of the Turkish midfielder but his agent, Reza Fazeli said

There is interest from many clubs.

AS conclude that the likely destination for the player will be Arsenal.

Mourinho wants Sahin to get minutes playing in a top European league and cannot guarantee the player, who missed a large portion of last season through injury, will receive them at Madrid.  The player, who was on the club’s US tour, was played at left-back when he was brought on as a substitute.

While press reports stating that Liverpool are interested in bringing the player to Anfield, Sahin has been strongly linked with Arsenal all summer and the fact that Arsenal have Champions League football could very well be a decisive factor.

Will this deal happen? It very well could, the reports have been strong and La Liga experts believe that Sahin will end up at Arsenal for the season ahead.  Will Arsenal get the option to buy clause they’ve been seeking?  That I have no clue about.
