Liverpool target Arda Turan looks set to leave Atletico Madrid - but Brendan Rodgers may have to wait until the summer to land him.
The Reds have tracked Turan in the past and the Turkish star has previously claimed he would be open to a switch to Anfield.
And now Rodgers has been boosted by news that the 25-year-old is considering leaving Spain at the end of the season.
Turan, who joined Madrid from Galatasaray in 2011, has netted four goals in 15 league appearances to propel Diego Simeone's side to second in the table but it looks as though may well be off in the summer.
"I have wanted to see [Arda] play for another team in another league and Arda also wants to play for another club," his agent Ahmet Bulut told Turkish television channel TRT.
"He wants a different experience. We are working now to try and do exactly that.
"Atlético know of our intentions. If successful, Arda will leave Atleti at the end of the season."
