Real Madrid manager José Mourinho has said that Arsenal would be a perfect place for Nuri Sahin to finally find his form. The Turkish international was a £ 8 million signing from Borussia Dortmund one year ago, but he has found first-team opportunities were limited at the Santiago Bernabeu. However, the Real Madrid manager José Mourinho told Arsenal Football News willing to offer him time in order to get in contention for a spot in the Real Madrid first-team. As a result, the 23-year-old will be allowed to leave the club on a season-long loan deal, with Arsenal being mooted as the possible destination.

The Premier league club recently lost their defensive midfielder Alex Song in a £ 15 million deal to Barcelona. The 24-year-old was one of the impressive performers for the team last season. Even though Arsene Wenger has admitted that he has a lot of options when it comes to midfield, he would like to bring in another player before the end of the transfer window. Nuri Sahin has been spoken of as a possible replacement for Alex Song, but Real Madrid are not willing to sell the player on a permanent basis. José Mourinho, though, believes that Nuri Sahin is a player made for the Premier league.

‘The Premier League is a good place for players to pick up certain characteristics which he does not have,’ said the Real Madrid manager. Meanwhile, he also confirmed that the club has not received any offers for the Brazil international Kaka. The 31-year-old has been linked with a move away from the club, with the French club PSG being mooted as the possible destination. However, it seems that also interested parties have been put off by the excessive transfer fee demand of the Spanish club, who paid £ 64 million to AC Milan for the player three years ago.
