Florian Plettenberg reports that Kenan Yildiz is “completely” frustrated by his situation at Juventus.

The player hasn’t played any minutes since his impressive appearances for Turkey over the last international break, and talks will take place in the coming days over a possible winter departure for him.

Plettenberg claims various options are on the table, whether for a loan or a permanent deal, and he confirms that teams in Germany and England have enquired for the youngster.

Turkish-Football previously reported that Arsenal have joined the race for Yildiz, making enquiries over his availability.

The Gunners are yet to submit a formal offer, but they’re reportedly keen to do so in the January transfer window.

Juventus have previously rejected loan offers for Yildiz, having recently extended his contract until 2027. But the club would now consider offers for the right price, due to their financial situation.

Yildiz only turned 18 this year, but he’s already made five appearances for Juventus’ first team.

The Turkish youngster has also impressed significantly in his early international appearances, with a goal in a friendly against Germany, and an assist in a European Qualifier against Wales.
