Marco Van Basten advised Orkun Kokcu to remain at Feyernoord despite interest form Arsenal

The great Marco Van Basten advised Orkun Kokcu to remain at Feyernoord despite interest from a number of clubs abroad, including Arsenal.

The midfielder has been impressing in the Eridivisie, with five goals and seven assists so far this season alone, and Orkun Kokcu is constantly linked with a potential move away from the club.

Marco has advised him to continue with his current side until the summer of 2023 however, instead of taking a risk by potentially moving to a bigger club as he is too young.

“He should stay with Feyenoord for at least another year and a half,” Marco Van Basten  told Ziggo Sport.

“Become stronger, hold on to your place in the starting line-up and then go abroad later on. That’s also better for yourself.

“Otherwise, you go a little too young. That happens every time, and you even see it in the big boys who went to Barcelona and Real Madrid. They too have had problems with it.”

Arsenal are supposedly interested in Kokcu for some time, before he had even made waves in the first-team, and he finally appears to be meeting some of the potential Arsenal scouts have been aware of for some time.

It’s been over two years since it was reported of Arsenal’s interest in his signature. He was previously believed to have been a winger, but now operates predominantly in a more central role in midfield, and could potentially be eyed this summer.
