Reds stepping up chase for La Liga midfielder.
Liverpool are said to be leading the chase to sign Atletico Madrid attacking midfielder Arda Turan for a deal worth £25.6m, according to the Metro.
The Turkish international has been a key performer for Atletico in recent times, helping them win La Liga and reach the final of the Champions League last season.
However, he is said to be open to leaving Spain for a move to England, which has alerted long-time admirers Liverpool ahead of the summer transfer window.
The likes of Arsenal and Manchester United have also been linked with Turan in the past, though it looks like Anfield could be his destination next season.
