Galatasaray coach confirms he wants Arda Turan

Galatasaray coach Igor Tudor has confirmed he wants to bring in Arda Turan but says he has not spoken to him recently.

Arda does not appear to be a part of Ernesto Valverde’s plans, having yet to make an appearance for the Blaugrana this season.

Rumors continue to swirl that he will depart in January and a return to former club Galatasaray looks an option.

“Arda is a great player and one of the most important players in the history of Turkish football,” Tudor said.

“Yes, I would like him to come to Galatasaray.

“There is a lot of talk about Arda, but since last summer we have not spoken again.”
