?According to his personal Twitter account, the player strongly denies any conversation relating to the Chelsea move. The Turkish international has since incurred a 4-match penalty for breaching talk agreements, leaving speculation that the talks in question are indeed true. €38m is the rumoured fee.

??Bayer Leverkusen are currently 10th in the Bundesliga, with a margin of 11 points separating them from playing Champions League football next year. A move to Chelsea would surely be a step up from his current level and rise the player’s stock considerably.
