There has been some reports emerge which have claimed Liverpool will battle Arsenal for the signing of £19 million rated Atletico Madrid star Arda Turan in the summer.

Arda had been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League following comments made by his agent Ahmet Bulut last year.

Bulut told Turkish state broadcasting service TRT, “Arda has played at Atletico Madrid for two seasons now. I have wanted to see him play for another team in another league and Arda wants the same.

 “I can’t say the league or you’ll know exactly who I’m talking about but let’s just put it like this, there are only 5-6 clubs which could afford Arda right now and he’s going to join one of these five clubs.” (AS, in Spanish)

The playmaker is brilliantly gifted and would be a great addition to either squad if he is to make a move at the end of the season. But it will be very interesting to see where he ends up as both teams would love him in the starting line-up.
