It is “probable” that Arsenal and Liverpool target Arda Turan will make a €20million move to the Premier League, according to his agent.
According to ESPN, both Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers have both been credited with an interest in the Atletico Madrid playmaker, who has a €20million release clause in his contract.
Arsenal look to be going on mad dash of transfer shopping after reportedly having a bid turned down for Newcastle United’s Yohan Cabaye and making enquires for Juventus starlet Paul Pogba, as well as his compatriot Geoffrey Kondogbia at Sevilla.
Meanwhile, the Liverpool manager has admitted he is looking to make further additions to his squad at Anfield and is confident of doing so.
One of Arsenal and Liverpool may be Turan’s destination after Ahmet Bulut revealed it was more than likely his client would be heading to England. “A transfer to the Premier League for Arda is probable this summer,” Bulut is quoted as saying to NTV Spor.
“In England is where there is more interest in him, and they know Atletico’s position well.
“The Madrid club are rejecting all offers for him, but if his clause is paid there is nothing they can do. There have been contacts.”
While many fans of both Arsenal and Liverpool would question whether either club needs a diminutive playmaker added to their ranks.
However, the Turkey international is a talented playmaker and has impressed many with his performances at the Vicente Calderon over the previous two seasons.
