Arsenal target Arda Turan is set to join Galatasaray. Elsewhere, Watford and Crystal Palace target Davide Santon has agreed personal terms with Sampdoria. In France, Bordeaux are happy to take Nampalys Mendy off Leicester City's hands but only if they can sign him on loan. Here's a full report of the summer transfer window in the soccer industry.

Arda Turan to join former club

The 30-year-old midfielder is set to re-join Galatasaray this week, a club he spent seven seasons from 2004. Earlier in the summer, Arda Turan was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal Football Club and it was speculated he was open to moving to the Premier League but that deal never materialized.

According to Football Espana, the Istanbul giants are ready to pay Arda Turan $91,000 per week during his second spell with them. The 30-year-old midfielder made his name with the club during his early part of his soccer career, before joining La Liga club Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2011. Turan has fallen-down the pecking order at Barca and wants a “fresh challenge” elsewhere with more first team football.

Santon agrees to join Sampdoria

Watford Football Club and Crystal Palace were said to be interested in Davide Santon, and they've offered him the opportunity to come back to England, where he previously spent time with Newcastle United. But now, according to Sempre Inter, the Italy international has now agreed personal terms with Serie A club Sampdoria instead.

Santon is desperately looking for a way out of Inter Milan this summer window after being told by the club he's no longer needed. Sampdoria are expected to agree to a transfer fee for Davide Santon with Inter Milan, and they're confident of signing him on loan in the coming days, with an option to buy him “permanently” next year.

Bordeaux willing to sign Mendy on loan

Several club sides in France are interested in Nampalys Mendy, including Girondin Bordeaux, but they only want him on loan, according to Daily Mail. Mendy is looking for a route out of Leicester this summer after enduring a disappointing first-season in the Premier League.

Leicester City Football Club are said to decide whether to let the Frenchman leave for a year or hold-out for a club who're ready to buy him permanently. Nampalys Mendy joined the Foxes from OGC Nice for a then club record transfer fee of $16.9m (£13million) in the summer of 2016, but injuries “blighted” his debut season, and he's now ready to move on elsewhere.
