Most of us know Arda Turan from the Turkish Men’s National Team in addition to Galatasaray, where he started and flourished his career prior to joining La Liga side Atletico Madrid.

With his recent success at the club, Turan has been looked at by many clubs around Europe, including Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and AC Milan. These four clubs have shown some interest, but only a couple of them have been serious in recent times.

Liverpool is the boyhood dream club of the Turkish international attacking midfielder/winger. He always stated in early times that he would choose Liverpool above all else to be a part of professionally. Therefore, the Anfield club should definitely consider bringing him aboard, as he would surely put in everything.

Another club that is rumored to be stepping up their pursuit is none other than AC Milan of the Serie A. They are a team that is stacked with talent, but they do not have any players who are quick on their feet — skills, sprinting and spreading the ball to make fast plays. Turan is the definite answer to this necessity. He would truly be the perfect fit and automatically bring them right back into title contention for the next season.

He did say that he has the desire to end his career in Turkey with Galatasaray, which is where his heart belongs. He needs to play the remainder of his European career abroad until he turns 32 or 33 years old, which is when he has just enough gas left in the tank to do something special. The fans would surely still welcome him with open arms.

Turan would be a perfect fit for both Liverpool and AC Milan, but which one he will join still remains a mystery. Also, Atletico Madrid may want to keep him there, as he is their most influential playmaker as the No. 10. If this happens, they will be able to continue battling Barcelona and Real Madrid for the La Liga title.
