Arsenal could reportedly compete with the likes of Inter Milan, Napoli and a host of Chinese clubs in the pursuit of Barcelona attacker Arda Turan.

The Turkey international has largely played second fiddle to Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar in the frontline, and he looks set to pursue a fresh challenge in the summer.

Turan made a total of 30 appearances during the recently concluded season - out of which 20 were starts.

Spanish publication Sport claims that Turan was not fully content following the 3-1 win over Alaves in the Copa del Rey final thus suggesting his intention to move on from Camp Nou.

Turan is said to have already cleared his locker room at the Catalan giants with London being his preferred target ahead of the summer transfer window.

Despite his limited action, Turan managed to bag 13 goals and seven assists, and this proves that he still has in himself to feature for one of Europe's elite next term.

The Turk was previously deemed to have begun house-hunting in the English capital before his representative dismissed the speculation.
