Calhanoglu could remain

Hakan Calhanoglu's agent says he is aware of Arsenal's interest in the player - but the youngster is more than happy to stay with Hamburg.

The 19-year-old German-born Turkish international has emerged as a target for a host of clubs, but it is Arsenal who are understood to be heading the queue for his services.

Speaking to Hamburger Morgenpost, his agent Bektas Demirtas admits that he was expecting Arsenal to make a move for him.

However, he feels that he could remain at Hamburg - with his current deal still having two and a half years left on it.

"I am aware of an interest of Arsenal FC in the services of Hakan," he said.

"I am expecting Arsenal FC to approach Hamburger SV in a more concrete way during this month or January.

"But Hakan and Hamburger SV, it's a story of success. Our main ambition is that he is staying on with Hamburger SV. To progress further as a player."
