Arsenal have already been linked with his solutions but Arda’s representative Ahmet Bulut maintains the player desires to fight for his place under new Barca boss Ernesto Valverde.
“Arda will stay at Barca,” Bulut told NTV Spor, reiterating a stance he took in June. “He has three years remaining on his contract.
“He will join the instruction camp because of start on July 12. There’s nothing at all new with regards to this.”
