Arsenal and Liverpool have been encouraged to make a formal bid for Arda Turan after the Atletico Madrid winger's agent revealed his client would jump at the chance to move to the Premier League, reports talkSPORT.
The 26-year-old Turkish international has been heavily linked with a transfer to England in the past - during his playing days with Galatasaray - but ended up moving to the Vicente Calderon in the summer of 2011.
Turan has gone on to establish himself as an integral part of Diego Simeone's first-team squad, playing a pivotal part in their Europa League and Copa del Rey final triumphs over the past two seasons.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been credited with an interest in bringing Turan to the Emirates Stadium, but has been put off by the player's valuation, after his representative Ahmet Bulut hinted that he won't leave Atletico for less than his £29million buy-out.
Brendan Rodgers has also been monitoring the attacking midfielder's situation, as he too looks to further strengthen his Liverpool squad before the close of the transfer window.
"The club does not want to sell Arda," Bulut told Tuttomercatoweb.com. "However, if we were to get an offer equal to his £29m buy-out clause Atletico should listen to such a proposal.
"Arsenal and Liverpool? A destination in the Premier League would be to the liking of the player and I can confirm there are clubs interested, like the two mentioned."
He added: "At the moment there are no concrete offers, only preliminary contacts."
