Turan did of course join Barcelona over the summer and has another four years remaining on his contract but if he were to join the Blues here are three reasons he is likely to succeed in London.
Chelsea are likely to have a summer clear-out following a disastrous season and with John Terry on his last legs the Blues are going to need new leaders. Turan was captain of Galatasaray and wears the armband for the national team. While not the official captain for Atletico Madrid he was one of the most influential members of the team. He has only been at Barcelona for six-months but he has already started to become a favourite of head coach Luis Enrique. The fiery winger-come-midfielder is the kind of player ready to sacrifice himself 100 percent for the team and rally his teammates as well as the fans.
