Orkun Kokcu is a wanted man but the Feyenoord midfielder is only focusing on being fit for the start of next season at the moment.

The midfielder has made 33 appearances for Feyenoord’s first-team and can sign a new contract with the club. However, he is also being followed by Arsenal and Sevilla, with a transfer this summer a big possibility.

Speaking to RTV Rijnmond, Kokcu said he doesn’t necessarily feel he has to play for years in the Eredivisie before moving abroad, “When the moment arrives and I feel good about it, we will see.”

However, Kokcu is in no rush, “I want to make the best of it next season and want to be as fit as possible when the competition starts again. For now I’m only working with Feyenoord. I have a contract until 2023, so I’m not in a hurry.” 

On the interest from Arsenal and Sevilla, Kokcu is calm, “It doesn’t really matter to me, frankly. My father and my agent are busy with that. I try to isolate myself from that. That works fine. Fortunately, I am a footballer and not an agent.”
