The agent of Atletico Madrid winger Arda Turan admits the Turk wants to play for Arsenal.

While a move might be a way off yet, Turan's agent, Ahmed Bulut, has tried to tempt the Gunners into getting involved in any potential bidding war.

Bulut said: "He is interested in working under Arsene Wenger and Arda would like to play in England.

"But Arda will not leave Atletico yet. They are part of the title race and he is a key player.

"Arda plays for a big club and he will be part of Atletico's success.

"I would like to emphasise again that Arda recently extended his contract. He will be staying at Atletico."
