Arda Turan informs agent of clubs he wants to joinJanuary 4, 2018
Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan has informed his agent of the clubs he wants to join as an exit from the Catalan club looks likely.
The Turkish international is in a long list of midfield options under Ernesto Valverde as Barca which includes Sergio Busquets, Andres Iniesta, Ivan Rakitic, Andre Gomes, Rafinha, Denis Suarez, Sergi Roberto and new signing Paulinho.
Valverde is keen to move the former Atletico Madrid man on and gain some extra funds to bolster his options and make a move for Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho.
Links with Premier League side Manchester United were rife before the English transfer window closed, whilst a potential loan move to former club Galatasaray was also mentioned.
After gaining interest from plenty of clubs, Arda has now told his agent of the three clubs he wants to join, which are said to be Besiktas, Everton or AC Milan.
Having moved to Barcelona two years ago, Arda has featured 53 times for Barca but his time on the playing field this season is yet to begin.
A move to either of the aforementioned sides is likely, with Besiktas keen to explore a potential loan move which would turn permanent.
AC Milan is also a possibility with a move to Italy high on the midfielder’s options.
