Arda Turan has been linked with a move to England for several Transfer Windows and it looks like that move is set to happen in this window. According to the Metro, the La Liga ace was in London to purchase a house probably for next season.

This comes after he handed in a transfer request at Atletico with a decision expected by Friday. It is understood that Diego Simeone would rather keep the midfielder but his £29 million clause is unlikely to be enough to deter the likes of Manchester United or Chelsea should they be seriously interested.

It would appear like Turan is Chelsea bound as he was looking for a house in London but Jose Mourinho’s side is not really short of midfielders at the moment. This has sparked fresh rumours that it may actually be Arsenal looking to further bolster their squad ahead of the new season.

It remains to be seen what actually happens as things change very quickly when its big players involved.
