Arsenal transfer target Orkun Kokcu has asking price slashed to £10m with Leicester & Leeds also keen on Feyenoord star

ARSENAL target Orkun Kokcu has reportedly caught the eye of Leicester and Leeds after having his transfer fee cut to £10million.

But according to Spanish newspaper La Razon, Kokcu has now had his price cut by more than half – and in doing so drawn the eyes of two more Premier League clubs.

Both Leicester and Leeds are said to be in for the 20-year-old international, who received his first cap for Turkey in September.

Sevilla are also looking at the youngster, whose contract does not expire with Feyenoord until 2025.

However, the Dutch side are open to letting him go for the right price as they look to address their financial problems.

Speaking recently about his future, Kokcu said: “I have a contract until 2025 but the situation has changed.

“The club has been very clear about the financial situation and it is clear that it is not good.

“So if a club comes with a good proposal for me and the entity can enter a good amount, I imagine that it will be listened to.”

Kokcu broke through into Feyenoord’s first team in 2018 and has been an integral part of their side ever since.

He has already racked up 49 appearances for the club, scoring seven goals and assisting eight more.

Kokcu has featured in central areas in both a 4-3-3 and 4-2-3-1 set-up this season, pushing into an advanced position in the latter formation.

Meanwhile, Arsenal now have an array of attacking options in the middle of the park including the likes of Thomas Partey, Emile Smith Rowe, Martin Odegaard and Willian.
