Feyenoord manager Dick Advocaat suggests that Arsenal are looking to secure the signature of midfielder Orkun Kokcu.

Feyenoord manager Dick Advocaat has hinted that Arsenal are showing an interest in midfielder Orkun Kokcu.

Having contributed two goals and six assists from 27 outings in the Eredivisie and Europa League this season, the 19-year-old is being tipped to move to a bigger club.

A number of recent reports have suggested that the Gunners are monitoring the playmaker's progression, something which has not been denied by Advocaat.

The veteran boss is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: "It seems that what I read is true, but no one has yet come to Feyenoord. I think he fits in everywhere."

The prospect, who is allegedly valued in the region of £23m, has over three years remaining on his contract.
