The 28 year old La Liga star has apparently fallen out with manager Diego Simeone and is being tracked by Arsenal scouts ahead of a potential summer move.

Arsene Wenger is ready to offer £22m for the former Galatasaray man though it appears his Arsenal squad is currently full of creative midfielers.

Turan is said to have clashed with Simeone following Atletico Madrid’s Copa del Rey defeat to Barcelona, during which the attacking midfielder threw a boot at a linesman.

Since moving to the Spanish capital in August 2011 Turan has played a key role in the club’s rich run of successes which have seen the club win Europa League, Copa del Rey and La Liga titles.
