Club director speaks out on reports of an Arsenal bid 

Despite recent reports from Turkey, Galatasaray has refuted claims of receiving an offer from Arsenal for Sacha Boey.

Denying the reports from Turkey, Galatasaray’s director Cenk Ergun has publicly refuted the claims of Arsenal submitting a bid for Sacha Boey. The recent suggestions of Arsenal’s interest in Boey have been categorically dismissed.

“There are currently no official offers for Sacha Boey,” Ergun told Radyospor (via talkSPORT).


According to Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal has not made any offer for Boey at this point. There have been no meetings or negotiations held with his new agents, confirming the absence of any official approach from Arsenal.

In addition, Fabrizio Romano mentions that Sacha Boey is among several players whom Arsenal holds appreciation for. However, Galatasaray has set a price tag of more than €20 million for the right-back, indicating their desired valuation for him.

Multiple sources in the English media had previously verified Arsenal’s interest in Boey. The Telegraph reported that the Gunners were contemplating a potential transfer for the defender, who reportedly expressed openness to joining the Premier League. 

The Evening Standard confirmed Arsenal’s interest and highlighted the club’s intention to reinforce their full-back positions during the summer. 

Additionally, the Daily Mail stated that Arsenal had set their sights on acquiring Boey, but they might face competition from other Premier League clubs.

According to The Telegraph and the Evening Standard, in addition to Sacha Boey, Arsenal might consider revisiting their interest in Ivan Fresneda as an alternative target. 

The Gunners had previously evaluated Fresneda from Real Valladolid during the January transfer window. 

Boey, who has represented Galatasaray in 31 matches this season, is a former France U20 international, highlighting his experience and international background.

It is evident that Arsenal is actively seeking to bolster their right-hand side of the defense, particularly due to the injuries of Takehiro Tomiyasu and William Saliba, which have highlighted the squad’s shortage in that area. 

However, Arsenal possesses some flexibility in the transfer market as both Ben White and Takehiro Tomiyasu are capable of playing as either center-backs or right-backs. 

This flexibility allows Arsenal to consider signings for either a central defender or a right-back, as they can adjust their existing players to cover the other position by rearranging their positions accordingly.
