Chelsea FC unsure whether to purchase flying left-footer

Chelsea are unsure as to whether they should sign the impressive attacking midfielder Arda Turan despite already deciding on a fee which would suit both parties.

Chelsea had previously made enquiries into the Galatasaray attacker with regards to a £15m move. The Turkish side however respond suggesting they valued Turan at £18m which Chelsea were apparently also happy to pay, however, since the unveiling of Andre Villas-Boas the Stamford Bridge side are uncertain as to whether he should be brought in or not.

Discussions have been held between Villas-Boas and Chelsea chief executive Ron Goulay regarding specific targets although Chelsea had begun the majority of their own enquiries into certain players before appointing the Portuguese as manager, whilst most names have been agreed upon, Turan remains one player that could be labelled a fifty-fifty.

With the new Chelsea manager happy for the board to progress with regards to Luka Modric of Tottenham Hotspur, he has suggested to the board that Mountinho should be considered should their North London rivals remain stubborn about a switch, however Turan is one transfer story that remains one to keep an eye on for the time being.
