Arda Turan (born 30 January 1987) is a Turkish footballer playing for Galatasaray and the Turkish national team. Already a regular in Fatih Terim's Turkish team at the age of 22, he currently has over 30 senior international caps. In July 2008, Arda was ranked 8th in the selection of the 100 Best Young Football Players in the World as published by Spanish magazine Don Balón.

He is a product of the Galatasaray youth system, but initially came to light once being on loan to Manisaspor in the 2005-06 season. He was recalled the for the start of the following season, and made a regular start in the first team. It was during this time that he received his first senior international call up. Arda quickly impressed manager Eric Gerets with his performances early in the 200607 season. After his performances in the Champions League qualifiers which led Galatasaray to the group stage, Arda became a first team regular.

Arda continued his development in the 2007-08 season. Despite a poor start to the season, Arda improved his performances immensely, scoring seven goals in the second half of the season. Following his impressive displays domestically, Newcastle United made a £9m offer to buy Arda prior to the Euro 2008 championships, but the Galatasaray chairman rejected the offer.

Prior to the 2009-10 season, Arda has been made the Galatasaray captain,and has been handed squad number 10, which had belonged to Metin Oktay and Gheorghe Hagi, having previously worn number 66.

As captain at the start of the 2009-10 season, he guided his team to six consecutive league wins games which put Galatasaray comfortably at the top of the table. He has scored two goals himself this season from the wings.
