Atletico Madrid midfielder Arda Turan wants to join Chelsea in a £29million deal this summer.

The Blues are emerging as strong candidates to land the talented Turkey star ahead of next season.

Turan wants to leave the Spanish capital this summer; news that has alerted a host of Europe’s top clubs.

Chelsea are among the 28-year-old’s suitors and have held initial talks with his representatives over a summer switch.

The Blues, though, face stiff competition from Paris Saint-Germain, while Manchester United have also registered an interest.

The Blues could yet use Filipe Luis as part of any deal to bring Turan to Stamford Bridge.

The left 0back arrived last year but has failed to make an impact and is open to returning to Spain.

Atletico manager Diego Simeone has already lined up Turan’s replacement as he steps up a move for Yevhen Konoplyanka.

The Ukraine winger is set to leave Dnipro this summer, with Tottenham, Sevilla and Stoke all showing an interest.

And Simeone is keen on the one-time Liverpool target as he looks to replace his outgoing Turk.
