ARDA TURAN HAS set his sights on a move to the Premier League despite interest from Paris-Saint Germain, the Atletico Madrid midfielder’s agent has revealed.

The Turkey international has been a key player for Diego Simeone’s side, but his representative — Ahmet Bulut — confirmed talks had taken place with a number of sides.

“He [Turan] intends to leave Spain this summer,” he told AS. “He is planning on leaving Spain this summer. He would like to play in the Premier League, this is the path he would like to see his career take.

Manchester United, Liverpool, AC Milan and PSG have all been linked with a move for the 28-year-old but Bulut says there is little chance of Turan moving to a club that does not play in the Champions League, given his release clause of €41 million.

“Yes, it’s true, both Milan and PSG are interested in Arda. The interest from Milan won’t advance as they are not involved in next season’s Champions League. PSG is a possibility, but Arda has always been keen to play football in England.
“There are ongoing talks with three teams at the moment. I cannot say their names, but they are the best of England and European football.”

Turan arrived at Atletico in 2011 and helped them claim the title in the 2013/14 season, as well as the Europa League and a Copa del Rey triumph.
