Arsenal move interests Man United & Liverpool target

Published 2 Comments

Atletico Madrid star Arda Turan's agent has revealed that his client would love the opportunity to play for Arsenal under Arsene Wenger in the future, telling Bold that although the Turkish international is fully committed to his current club a future Premier League move is on the cards.

Turan penned a contract extension with Atletico last December but that has done little to dampen speculation over a potential switch to England, with Liverpool and Manchester United both mentioned in connection with a £20m swoop in January.

The 27-year-old is under contract at the Vicente Calderon until 2017 but his representative Ahmed Bulut has offered the Gunners incentive to bid for his client, insisting that the opportunity to play under Wenger would be a special proposition worth considering.

Bulut is quoted by Inside Futbol as telling Bold: "He is interested in working under Arsene Wenger and Arda would like to play in England.

"But Arda will not leave Atletico yet. They are part of the title race and he is a key player.

"Arda plays for a big club and he will be part of Atletico's success. I would like to emphasise again that Arda recently extended his contract. He will be staying at Atletico."

The 27-year-old has been in sparking form this season for Atletico, proving a key contributor to their quest to stun Barcelona and Real Madrid to claim the La Liga title.

Diego Simone's side are currently four points behind league leaders Real, with the pressurised environment of fighting on multiple fronts providing a good opportunity for Liverpool, Arsenal and United to monitor Turan's progress closely.
