The Turkish star recently posed with Chelsea’s Diego Costa on the Spanish striker’s Instagram page after the two former Atletico Madrid team-mates spent some time to be together.
That picture posted on social media made some papers to suggest that Barcelona might be targeting Costa ahead of this summer’s transfer window. However according to the Turkish media outlet FotoMac, current English Premier League table leaders Chelsea FC are the ones who are interested to sign Arda Turan.
Turan, following his £24m move to the Nou Camp club from Atleti, hasn’t enjoy the greatest of time. The 30-year-old versatile midfielder has only made 34 league appearances since his move in 2015.
It is rumoured that he is looking for a new adventure and Antonio Conte’s Chelsea could give him that exactly.
The Stamford Bridge club sold attacking midfielder Oscar to China last January and are yet to replace him with anyone. It is believed that Turan could be a potential replacement for the Samba star.

“They just look like a team that know exactly where they’re going right now.
“Their goalkeeper made another good save, they could have lost the game but they’ve stepped up.
“They are playing exactly how they should play to try to win the league when you’re that far in front.”
