The Daily Express are reporting that Atletico midfielder Arda Turan could be off to the Premier League with either Liverpool, Chelsea or Manchester United.
The Turk played 30 league games in the title winning season for Atletico Madrid but this was his least since joining in 2o11 from Galatasaray. It is thought that he may be shipped out of Vicente Calderon to make room for Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla for whom his club are preparing an £18m bid.
Arda Turan, a winger by trade, has 72 caps for his country and the 27 year old has a £33m release clause in his contract. Liverpool, Chelsea or Manchester United will only be his destination in my opinion if this can be negotiated down, especially after the heftier fees already spent by each of those clubs.
