Harry Arter eyed as shock Besiktas transfer target with Bournemouth midfielder wanted by Turkish clubs

HARRY ARTER has emerged as a surprise target for three clubs in Turkey.

Super Lig sides Besiktas, Ankaragucu and Denizlispor are all interested in signing the midfielder on a permanent deal.

Arter, 30, is back training with Bournemouth after two seasons away from the club on loan.

The first was spent at Cardiff where he suffered relegation from the Premier League.

The latter was with Fulham, working under brother-in-law Scott Parker, with whom he won promotion to the top flight via the play-offs.


It remains to be seen if the Cottagers move to bring Arter in on a permanent basis.

Though it looks unlikely after they bolstered their midfield ranks.

Harrison Reed completed a transfer from Southampton following his successful loan spell in West London last term.

And on the same day Mario Lemina joined on loan, also from the Saints.

Ireland international Arter has one year remaining on his deal at Bournemouth, who are back in the Championship after their five-year stay in the Premier League ended last term.

The former Charlton youngster was spotted by now-Cherries boss Jason Tindall during his one season with Woking in 2009-10.

He moved to the Vitality a decade ago, racking up 255 appearances and 29 goals for the club.

Bournemouth begin their bid to get back in the Premier League on Saturday when they host Blackburn.
