Sky Italy is reporting that Arsenal and Chelsea are in a battle for Turkish attacking midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu in the summer.

The 27-year-old is almost out of contract, with AC Milan still aiming to offer the player a new deal, but the two parties are reportedly at a stalemate with the player demanding more of a fixed contract than the Rossoneri are willing to offer.

Milan are believed to have offered wages of £66k-a-week, but the Turkey international is keen to want in excess of £82k-a-week.

Calhanoglu scored for country in a 3-3 draw against Latvia in the last international break and with the European Championship finals on the horizon, his stock could still rise. He has made 163 appearances for Milan and has scored seven goals and added 11 assists in 34 games this season.

Reports also suggest that Juventus are keen on the player should he become available in the summer and could offer more from a monetary standpoint than the two London clubs.
