AS report that that 26-year-old, who moved from Gala to Atleti in 2011 for an initial €12m fee, is his former Turkish club’s primary target in the summer transfer window.
The two clubs are understood to have held talks over the creative midfielder, and these are gathered to be beyond fixing Atleti’s payments for instalments reportedly due on his original transfer.
However, as per Coach Diego Simeone’s request, the capital club have made clear that Arda is not available below his €24m buyout clause.
It is also understood that a number of Premier League sides are looking at the No 10 with an eye to a move in the upcoming transfer market.
