Former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong is a target for a number of clubs in Turkey and Holland, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Frimpong is on the lookout for a new club after finally securing his release from Russian side Ufa in April.

The Ghana international moved to the Russian Premier League with Ufa in September 2014, but he failed to settle in Russia.

Frimpong made 25 appearances during his two-year stint in Russia and he was involved in controversy last July when called the Russian Football Union 'beyond a joke' after he was handed a two-game ban for reacting to alleged racist abuse.

The 24-year-old is now looking to get his career back on track by fixing himself up with a new club this summer.
