The gunners primary priorities in the next market will be to sign a backup left back to their first choice option Kieran Tierney who is proven his worth for the side every time he has donned the red and white stripes.
Amid rumors the Emirates-based side were considering a move for Southampton fullback Ryan Bertrand who is out of contract at the end of the season, Yilmaz has emerged as another option being considered.
The marauding left-back was recently called up in the provisional 30-man squad for the euros and has spoken of his admiration for the Mikel Arteta-led side fuelling further rumors that a move could be on the cards.
“It was a dream for me to be selected for the National Team and it has come true. I want to leave Beşiktaş by making money. My heart is in favor of England. I want to play for Arsenal, the Premier League team.”Yilmaz said.
At only 19 years and contracted to his club to 2023, Ridvan made twenty appearances for Super Lig winners Besiktas who edged second runners up Galatasaray only by a one-goal difference to win the title.
