Arda Turan to Istanbul Basaksehir

Marca claim the 30-year-old will return to his homeland to join Istanbul Basaksehir. Turan signed for Barcelona when they were under a registration ban, meaning he had to wait until January 2016 to make his debut. Since then the Istanbul native has managed just 23 La Liga starts and is yet to make a league appearance this season. Basaksehir president Goksel Gumusdag said: "I understand the media are excited and I am so excited too, but we have to wait. We have a couple of steps to go in order to finish the deal."

Michy Batshuayi to Sevilla

Conte said previously: "I am very happy when he's playing and when I am calling him to start the game. He has to continue this way." A move away from Stamford Bridge looks to be on the cards, with El Desmarque reporting Batshuayi will move to Sevilla on loan for the rest of the campaign.
