Hamburg midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu is expected to attract offers from England in the coming days.

The Daily Express says Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool are ready to launch bids of £10million for playmaker Calhanoglu after Bundesliga giants Bayer Leverkusen confirmed they have already seen an initial offer rejected by his club Hamburg.

The 20-year-old Turkish international is one of the German league's biggest prospects after enjoying a fine season with HSV, making 32 appearances and scoring 11 times.

Bayer CEO Michael Schade said: "We are interested in Calhanoglu.

"We have already submitted a written offer to Hamburg. It's been refused for now, but will hopefully not be the last word."
