Arsenal have been linked with a move for Real Madrid central midfielder Nuri Sahin, possibly on loan for the forthcoming 2012-13 season, in a move which would make a lot of sense for the Gunners.

Sahin moved to Madrid last summer in a €10 million deal after impressing hugely at previous club Borussia Dortmund, who he helped to the 2011 Bundesliga title.

However, injuries and competition for places restricted Sahin to only four La Liga appearances last season as his new team also won the league.

Aged 23, Sahin has already accumulated good experience despite his youth, with more than 30 caps for his international side Turkey and more than 150 league games played in the top flights of Holland, Germany and Spain.
