Serie A giants Inter Milan will reportedly offer stiff competition to Arsenal in the pursuit of Barcelona winger Arda Turan in the summer.

The Turkey international has struggled to nail down a regular role at Camp Nou over the past year, and this has urged Barca to cash in on his services.

Turan has started just 25 league outings for Barca mainly due to the presence of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, and a summer exit looks a distinct possibility.

Arsenal are said to hold an interest in Turan with the future of Germany international Mesut Ozil hanging in the balance, but they could face a potential tussle with the Nerazzurri, who are themselves keen to bolster their forward ranks, Fanatik reports.

Despite his restricted gametime, Turan has managed to notch an impressive tally of 11 goals and four assists in 26 appearances for the Spanish champions this term.

Barcelona currently rate the attacker at around £25m - which is quite similar to the sum paid to Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2015.
