Fotomac report Trabzonspor will soon begin the operation to sign Crystal Palace’s Alexander Sörloth on a permanent basis and are seeking help from the player to complete the move.

The 23 year old has been in excellent form since joining the Turkish club on loan in the summer and that’s led to rumours Trabzonspor want to purchase him outright.

They have the option to make the move permanent by paying €6m to Crystal Palace but Fotomac report Karadeniz Firtinasi are looking to reduce his price to €4m.

To achieve this the Turkish side are hoping the Norwegian striker will inform the Premier League club about his intention to stay in Trabzon.

After making a great start to the season in the Super Lig, Sörloth has now scored four goals in his last three games for Norway.

Trabzonspor’s loan agreement for Sörloth will run until June 2021, and the Norwegian is under contract with Crystal Palace until June 2022.
