Arda Turan linked with 'fathers' team Liverpool

Atletico Madrid star Arda Turan has been linked with Liverpool according to AS.

The article claims that Arda Turan grew up watching Liverpool and that his father is a Reds fan. Turan would reportedly make his father happy if he were to join Liverpool but his agent Ahmet Bulut believes it is unlikely as his client wants Champions League football.

Bulut revealed that he is currently in talks with three Premier League clubs and that Turan does want to play in England next season.

“He intends to leave Spain this summer. It is his will to go out to play in the Premiership, that is where he would like to continue his career at this time,” Bulut said.

Manchester United and Chelsea are currently the bookmakers favourite to sign the Turkish international winger.

United are preparing a ‘huge transfer bid’ for the Turkish international according to Gazzetta dello Sport but AS report that Chelsea are leading the race to sign Turan.

Turan still has two years on his contract with the Rojiblancos and a €40 million release clause.
