Fans of Premier League clubs, particularly Chelsea – are starting get excited. Earlier this week Arda Turan confirmed his intention to move to England this summer, and now his agent has confirmed he is in talks with ‘three of the best’ clubs in England.
It seems certain that Chelsea are one of those three, with the clubs links to Atletico very strong and an exchange deal involving Filipe Luis mooted.
“His intention is to leave Spain this summer.” his agent told press.
“His will is to leave and to play in the Premier League, that is the path he would like to take to continue his career. We are currently in talks with three teams but I cannot reveal the names of the clubs. However, I can tell you that they are the best in England and in European football.”
Manchester City could also be interested as they look to add significant quality to their squad this summer. Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United have all also been reported to be interested in the versatile attacking midfielder.
28 year old Turan is a very versatile player who has performed consistently at the highest level for some time now. His ability to play in any position across the midfield will particular appeal to Arsene Wenger who likes to interchange his attacking players.
Here’s how fans, particularly Chelsea fans are reacting on Twitter to the news. Join the conversation, tweet us @FreshFootball to get involved.
Turan would fit in perfectly here at Chelsea, good work-rate and our playing style is similar to Atleti's.

AS inevitably say some kind of Arda Turan and Filipe Luis swap deal could be on.

Cannot fathom why United are in for players like schweinsteiger an supposedly Turan. No doubt in their quality but for how long?

Diego and Thibaut Courtois should help us lure Arda Turan…quality player he is, and he can fit into our system.

Turan is pretty underrated. Not many people are aware of his incredible talent. Class player. A MF United should sign.
