Galatasaray midfielder Arda Turan is considering heading to another European club, and is open to English bids over his future, according to his representative Ahmet Bulut.
“He has a contract with Galatasary so he cannot sign for another club,” Bulut told Sport.co.uk.
“I can therefore confirm that he has not signed with any side.
“I can confirm we are talking with one very big club in Europe about a potential move in the summer.
“Unfortunately I cannot name the club. In the next 10-15 days we are looking to finalise a deal.
“It is not an English club we are talking to, but we are open.
“Any move is subject to Gala[tasaray] agreeing a fee as he is under contract and Arda has confirmed he wants to leave this summer.”
Turan has regularly expressed a desire to play for Liverpool next season, telling reporters: “My dream is to play for Liverpool FC.”
Turan was named best young footballer in the world by Spanish publication Don Balon, and has 43 international caps for Turkey at the relatively young age of 24.
Should Liverpool still be interested in a deal, they will have to compete with Cheslea, with Roman Abramovich reportedly wanting to lower the average age of the Chelsea squad.
While a price hasn’t been confirmed over Turan’s worth, it is sure to be in the tens of millions of pounds, and Liverpool and Chelsea will surely have the budgets to include the midfielder in their summer wish lists.
