Raising to fame[edit]

Arıkan had begun his career at Petkimspor, an amateur team based in western Turkish city of İzmit. He then joined Kocaelispor in 2001. During his time with Kocaeli, he played both for senior and youth teams for almost three seasons until he began to play regularly as the number one keeper.

Beşiktaş era[edit]

He joined Beşiktaş in exchange with keeper Ramazan Kurşunlu plus 0.7 million Euros.[3] He has played alternately with Rüştü Reçber in 2007/08 Season.After a couple of years of being Rüştü Reçber's under study he finally became a regular for his team in the 2010-11 season along with Cenk Gönen making important saves several times including a back to back save in the same second against Rapid Wien.

National team[edit]

Arıkan was initially called up for the national team before the match against Georgia in February 2007. He made his debut on 5 June 2007 against Brazil, in a game dedicated to Tugay Kerimoğlu's last cap for national team.[4] He could not find a place in Euro 2008 selection.
