Chelsea are being linked with a summer move for Turkish international winger Arda Turan.
The highly-rated Galatasaray skipper has been linked with a move to the Barclays Premier League in the past, with Liverpool previously thought to be monitoring the 24-year-old.
However, Chelsea have jumped to the front of the queue for the player, with a move now hinging on the appointment of Guus Hiddink at Stamford Bridge, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Turkey national team coach is poised for a return to west London this summer, and is also negotiating a return for Ray Wilkins at Chelsea in conjunction with his arrival, according to the Daily Star.
Ron Gourlay, chief executive at Chelsea, said he was confident the club would appoint a new manager within the next couple of weeks, and all signs appear to point to the former Australian boss.
The Mirror goes on to claim that Hiddink would immediately sanction an £18 million player-plus-cash deal to bring Turan to Chelsea, with right back Jose Bosingwa moving in the other direction to the Türk Telekom Arena.
