Liverpool, Man Utd linked with bids for Atletico Madrid winger Arda Turan

Liverpool and Manchester United are battling for Atletico Madrid winger Arda Turan.

The Daily Express says reports in Turkey suggest that the bitter rivals have both sent their scouts to watch Turan in action, but the winger has a £33million (€40million) release clause in a contract he recently signed with Atletico.

United manager David Moyes is still looking to put his stamp on the Premier League champions after a sub-standard opening to the season, and may look to bring in Turan - who has Champions League experience with both Madrid and Galatasaray - to strengthen his side.

But there will most likely be a bid to bring the Turkey international to Anfield, as Reds boss Brendan Rodgers continues to build a squad fit for competing in Europe's top competition by the end of the season.
