Diego Simeone has lined up an Arsenal ace to replace the midfielder should he depart…
Liverpool are on red alert as Atletico Madrid star Arda Turan looks set to leave the Vicente Calderon, reports the Daily Express.
The Rojiblancos have lined up Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla as a replacement should the Turkey international decide to leave the club, but will only make the move if he is going to play in his favoured position in central midfield. If Turan should leave it would leave this position free at the La Liga champions.
The Reds are likely to need to spend £26. 5 million if they want to sign the 28-year-old, which is a high price for a player who will have little resale value at that age. The former Galatasaray ace can play on either wing as well as through the middle, but could still cause trouble trying to fit in to a front line that already contains Raheem Sterling, Philippe Coutinho, and Adam Lallana.
