Could Arda Turan be on his way to China this summer?

Several Turkish media sources are claiming that there is a possibility that Arda Turan could accept an offer from a club from the Chinese Super League and leave Barça.

The 29-year-old has been approached by the three most powerful Chinese teams who are offering the midfielder multi-million-dollar contracts to tempt him away from the Camp Nou.

Arda had already received a firm proposal several months ago, but declined the opportunity to move to China in order to continue playing for Barça. The Turk acknowledges that his situation with the Blaugrana has become increasingly difficult with the arrival of Denis Suarez, and he could be forced to rethink his future if the Catalan club receive the 30 million euros asking price.

In Turkey, Galatasaray and Fenerbahce have both shown willingness to sign Arda, while more serious interest has come from Chelsea and Arsenal. Juventus and AC Milan have also made enquiries.

For now, Barça aren't entertaining any offers and will wait until Arda returns from his holidays to talk to him personally. His agent has denied that the former Atletico Madrid man wants to leave the Camp Nou, but welcomed the interest from clubs across Europe and in China.
