Liverpool fans are looking up here in the Football Transfer Tavern and cannot wait to hear what Metro have to say about their hopes of landing a La Liga star.
The player in question is Arda Turan whose reputation has grown along with his trophy cabinet over the last couple of seasons.
The Atletico Madrid winger is known for his passion on and off the field and even threw a boot at the linesman during their Copa del Rey clash with Barcelona – but is an integral part of Diego Simeone’s side and given how obviously the defending champions of the Primera Division struggle when he is injured or not fully fit, it would take some offer to prise him away from the Spanish capital.
Given he is the Reds top target, they are willing to offer around £25.6 million for him – fairly big money for a 28 year old – and we think that the Merseyside club need to be focusing on bringing in a central defender and a Steven Gerrard replacement before they consider another winger!
Liverpool fans. Do you need another winger or is that just adding to an area you are already quite strong in? Let us know your thoughts below.
