Arsenal handed Sacha Boey transfer opportunity with Galatasaray planning bid for Gunners outcast

Arsenal could use one Gunners outcast to help land Galatasaray right-back Sacha Boey this summer, according to reports.

Boey has enjoyed an impressive campaign for the Turkish giants and is attracting the attention of several European clubs.

Mikel Arteta is keen to strengthen his back line after he was forced to play Thomas Partey and Jakub Kiwior as makeshift full-backs for the last two games of the season, following a number of injuries in defence.

It is thought that natural right-back Takehiro Tomiyasu won't return from a knee injury until after the start of next season, while Kieran Tierney looks increasingly likely to leave the Emirates amid interest from Newcastle and Aston Villa.


In turn, the Gunners boss is keen to add a right-sided defender to his ranks, and Boey has allegedly been identified as a target.


According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal are yet to enter into formal discussions with Galatasaray over a move for the 22-year-old and there has been no meeting with Boey’s agents.

However Romano revealed he is a player admired by Arsenal, as they prepare for a busy Champions League schedule next term.


And it seems Arsenal may have found a loop hole to help sign the young Frenchman, after reports emerged linking Nuno Tavares with a move to Galatasaray.

Arsenal handed transfer swap opportunity

Turkish journalist Reşat Can Özbudak has claimed that Galatasaray have "met with the representatives of Nuno Tavares".

It is said that the Turkish club will assess the situation and make a bid once the left-back finishes the U21 European Championships with Portugal in Romania.


As a result, Arteta could use Tavares as a bargaining tool to help sign Boey, with a potential player-plus-cash exchange on the cards.

Romano reported that Arsenal would have to meet Galatasaray's €25m (£21.6 million) asking price to sign Boey.

While Tavares is priced at a meagre £7.5million, according to Portuguese news outlet A Bola.
