Agent Trying To Get Everton To Sign Barcelona Star After Arsenal Dropped Our Race
Everton have become the latest club to be linked with Barcelona outcast Arda Turan according to reports in Spain.
Mundo Deportivo claim that Turan’s agent Ahmet Bulut has contacted and offered the attacking midfielder to Everton and AC Milan.
Per the source, Arsenal have now dropped out the race.
Besiktas have also been linked with the experienced midfielder but are not prepared to match his wages.
The report claims that Turan’s wages worth €7m per-year could prove a stumbling block.
Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde wants to part ways with Turan in January.
The La Liga leaders want €20 million for Turan which could prove a stumbling block considering he has not played a minute of competitive football this season.
Turan could end up becoming the second Turkish international to join Everton should the deal go through.
That is of course if Besiktas star Cenk Tosun completes his move to the Toffees.
Turan joined Barcelona in 2015 but has struggled for playing time since Ernesto was appointed manage over the summer.
The 30-year-old does however, still have another two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract.
