Published Add your comment

Liverpool playmaker target Arda Turan is reportedly set to leave Galatasaray this summer.

The Turkish international has been linked with a number of clubs across Europe, with Liverpool thought to be one of the Barclays Premier League clubs monitoring the player's progress.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is also thought to have an interest in the player, while Atletico Madrid and Chelsea have also been linked with a move in the past.

Reports on claim the player has told teammates of his desire to leave the SuperLig outfit, with Turan one of the bright sparks in a poor campaign for the Gala. They currently sit 11th in the table.

“He can only go to one of the top five clubs in the Premier League. If he gets an offer from one of them, then of course he will want to play there," said chief representative Ahmet Bulut.


Liverpool are thought to be in the market for an attacking midfielder, with Dalglish hinting at a number of changes in a variety of positions on Merseyside.

Whilst the Reds have been tracking the 24-year-old for close to 18 months, according to reports, it's unknown if 'King Kenny' will follow former manager Rafa Benitez's lead and take an interest in the player.

Turan, who can also play in the left wing position, looks set for a summer switch no matter what, and Liverpool will face competition from a string of sides if they want to sign the former Manisaspor loanee.
