Reported Liverpool target Arda Turan is ready to make his much touted move the Barclays Premier League this summer.
Also linked with the likes of Chelsea and Spurs, the lithe Turkish midfielder is one of the most highly-regarded prospects in Europe and would surely be a welcome addition to the English game.
Galatasary are reportedly ready to listen to offers for his services when the transfer reopens in June and his agent suggests a summer move is a distinct possibility.
“He can only go to one of the top five clubs in the Premier League," said Ahmet Bulut, according to the Daily Star. "If he gets an offer from one of them, then of course he will want to play there.”
The 24-year-old is thought to be an long-term target for Liverpool having previously revealed his allegiance to the Reds and the Anfield club would appear to be one of the favourites to sign the €16 million-rated Turkey international.
"As I always mention, Liverpool attracts me because of their tradition. In Europe, I am a Liverpool supporter, so if I go to play in Europe, I would like to play for them," explained Turan.
But Liverpool are expected to have to compete without he sizeable financial power of Chelsea for Turan's signature in what could be a fascinating transfer battle.
