Arda Turan has bought a house in London, close to Stamford Bridge, which has increased talk of a potential transfer at the end of the season. 

According to a source close to the player, revealed on Turkish-Football, he has purchased a house in the neighbourhood of Chelsea, close to the Premier League leader's home. 

It could, of course, just be an investement, but the Turkish international has been linked with Chelsea many times and even with Arsenal. 

Turkish newspaper Fotomac announced that Turan, 30, has began talks with Chelsea with the idea of signing for them next season. 

They add that the player was in London last week -- when he was photographed with ex-Atletico Madrid teammate Diego Costa -- to meet with club officials. 

Turan has also had many offers from China to leave Barcelona, but Luis Enrique's desire to keep him has seen him stay until now.
