Liverpool set to launch bid for Atletico ace

Liverpool are contemplating a summer move to bring Atletico Madrid midfielder Arda Turan to Anfield according to Spanish source AS.

Brandon Rodgers is believed to be a keen admirer of the Turkish international and is said to be preparing a £19m bid for the diminutive winger.

Turan has impressed since moving to La Liga 18 months ago and has been a key part of an Atletico Madrid team that has surprised all this season.

Adding fuel to the transfer fire, Turan’s agent Ahmet Bulut has recently been quoted as telling Turkish state broadcasting service TRT:

“Arda has played at Atletico Madrid for two seasons now. I have wanted to see him play for another team in another league and Arda wants the same.”

“I can’t say the league or you’ll know exactly who I’m talking about but let’s just put it like this, there are only 5-6 clubs which could afford Arda right now and he’s going to join one of these five clubs.”

    Bill FSG are not putting Money into Liverpool FC Liverpool are spending the Cash that the club makes on and off the field Rodgers has a plan he cant do that plan in one go we dont have the funds to be able to do that so we have to do it over 3 or 4 windows and that means that we will have players playing that are not the managers No1 choice for the position but they will have to do a job there untill we can replace them The so called kids will make up the squad and the money will be spent on the round pegs to fit into the round holes as you have seen with Sturridge and Coutinho Suarez Gerrard you will see more midfielders and then Defenders signed untill he his happy that the players on the pitch our his players playing his style of football its really not that difficult to understand
