Arda Turan dreams of playing for Liverpool.

The Atletico Madrid star has been linked with a summer move to Anfield.

According to reports in Spain, Brendan Rodgers has made the £26.5million-rated playmaker his top target.

And Rodgers' chances of signing Turan are boosted by the fact he supports Liverpool...

"I want to play in major leagues and my dream team is Liverpool," the Turkey international revealed before leaving Galatasaray for Atletico in 2011.

"As I always mention, Liverpool attracts me because of their tradition.

"In Europe, I am a Liverpool supporter, so if I go to play in Europe, I would like to play for them."

Turkey teammate Nuri Sahin  - who had a short spell at Liverpool on loan - uploaded a picture on Twitter of Turan wearing a Liverpool shirt.

However, Turan has since won La Liga, the Europa League, the UEFA Super Cup, Copa del Rey and Supercopa de Espana and has a Champions League runners-up medal with Atletico.

The 28-year-old is a key member Diego Simeone's side and has made 31 appearances for Atletico this season.
