Arsenal close to securing deal

Nuri Sahin, Real Madrid midfielderArsenal will announce the loan signing of Nuri Sahin in the next 24 hours, according to The Daily Mail.

The Gunners have had a busy summer in the transfer market, signing Santi Cazorla, Lukas Podolski and Olivier Giroud, but losing Robin van Persie to Manchester United.

With Alex Song on the verge of completing a deal to move to Barcelona also, Arsene Wenger is keen to bolster his options in the centre of midfield.

Sahin has had a frustrating time in the Spanish capital since moving from Borussia Dortmund last summer, and has only made a handful of appearances for Jose Mourinho’s men.

Despite reported interest from Liverpool, the Gunners will confirm Sahin’s season-long loan deal on Monday.
