Arda Turan: Chelsea and Barcelona target confirms he is speaking with 3-4 clubs

The Atletico Madrid midfielder appears destined to leave

Chelsea and Barcelona target Arda Turan has admitted his agent is in talks with three or four clubs over a possible exit from Atletico Madrid.

The Turkey playmaker has a contract with the Spanish club until June 2017 but his agent, Ahmet Bulut, has been quoted as saying in recent days the 28-year-old is keen to play in the Premier League.

Chelsea, Barcelona or Manchester United are possible destinations, along with Ligue 1 champions PSG and Italian side AC Milan also in the hunt.

'My agent is currently in touch with 3-4 clubs,' Arda said on Twitter. 'I will update you all if a deal is made.'

Arda, who has a market value of £25m, has become a hugely popular figure with the Atletico fans in his four seasons in the Spanish capital since joining from Galatasaray.

He was a key figure in their charge to a first La Liga title in 18 years and their run to the Champions League final in 2013-14.
