Turan has spoken of his desire to experience football overseas and Anfield would be one of his preferred destinations.

''Of course I want to play abroad but it is our board's decision,'' said the 23-year-old, who has previously been linked with Rafael Benitez's side. ''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.''

Turan also told the UEFA website: ''My dream has always been to play for one of the top European clubs, but you shouldn't make concrete plans in your life because sometimes these plans cannot be achieved. This is my dream, but for now I'm just working on my football.''
