Turan’s agent Ahmet Bulut has been fuelling rumours of a Premier League move.

Bulut told “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.”

The agents comments came a year ago but he did also underlined that were Turan to make a move to England it would be at the end of the current season.

“Arda will be 28 by the end of the season and could be transferred to another club, if this were to happen it would be to one of Europe’s top eight sides, otherwise he wouldn’t consider moving as Atleti are already one of the best teams on the continent,” Bulut told Fanatik.

Turan has a contract with Atleti until 2017 and is valued in the region of £22 million.

The 28-year-old became the first Turkish born player to win the La Liga as Atleti won their first league title since 1996 last season.
Turan was also part of the team that reached the Champions League final last season.
The Turkish international has won every domestic trophy in Spain as well as the Europa League and European Super Cup.
Turan has three goals and six assists in all competitions for the Spanish champions this season.
