Arda Turan could make surprise deadline day Premier League switch

A host of Premier League clubs including Liverpool and Manchester United could make shock deadline-day bids for Atletico Madrid star Arda Turan, with the midfielder reportedly fed up with life in Spain.

According to the Daily Express, citing sources in Spain, the Turkish star is said to have fallen out with Diego Simeone despite his influential role in guiding them to the La Liga title last term, and with his reputation as one of Europe’s most gifted players in no doubt, there’s plenty of clubs queuing up for his signature.

Plenty of interest

Arsenal and Chelsea join the aforementioned giants in being on alert over the possibility of landing Turan, with a move to the Premier League perhaps being of interest to the player whilst he remains in his peak years.

There’s continually been links between himself and England’s elite division over the years, with United finding themselves mentioned frequently in past transfer windows.

Atletico stance

With the market set to slam shut until the summer at midnight tonight there’s an obvious time frame in place for anyone hoping to strike a late deal, though a release clause pegged at £32 million could be a sticking point.

Simeone is naturally going to want to avoid losing a first-team player mid-way through the season, especially one who has such rapport as Turan, and so the Argentinian manager holding out for a maximum fee is a virtual certainty in the event of any concrete proposals.

Interested parties

In relation to which club would be the most likely to submit an offer for the wide-man, United are arguably the best placed to make a bid. The Red Devils have plenty of money to spend both now and in the summer, and with Louis van Gaal keen to continue his overhaul of the squad it can be assumed that he’ll consent to paying big if he deems the player good enough.

Chelsea meanwhile are on the verge of securing a deal for Fiorentina star Juan Cuadrado, with the Colombia international set to seal a move to Stamford Bridge in the coming hours. If that comes to fruition then there will be no need for Turan, despite the fact that both Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah are on their way out.
