The Spanish champions remain keen to acquire Cazorla from Arsenal this summer but accept they need to sell before pulling off the move.

Even with Diego Costa's move to Chelsea all-but-complete Atletico will still require further funds if they are to bring in new players this summer.

And reports in Spain suggest that Turan could well be the player shipped out.

Turan has a £33m release clause and even if Atletico have to compromise on that figure a little, they know it will be more than enough to offer the £18m for Cazorla.
