According to regional website Karadeniz Gazete, Daniel Sturridge, who finally left Liverpool in the summer, has opened a football agency and is trying to get Trabzonspor teammates Abdulkadir Omur and Ugurcan Cakir on his books.
It’s reported Sturridge’s company is currently being managed by his uncle, and the English striker is hoping he can convince Cakir and Omur to jump onboard.
The two Turkey internationals have been heavily linked with a move to Premier League, with Cakir said to be a target for Liverpool.
Karadeniz Gazete claim Sturridge has promised the young goalkeeper a move to the Premier League if gets to represent him, and it’s again claimed Liverpool are serious about singing the player,
This year the 23-year-old broke into the Turkey national squad and he’s expected to become their No.1 in the future.
Omur is currently out with an injury and won’t return until at least February.
Nicknamed the ‘Turkish Messi’, the left-footed wide man made his debut for the Trazbonspor last year and the 20-year-old quickly became a regular in the starting eleven before his injury.
He’s been linked with Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool in the past. The Reds were said to be following Omur’s progress and reports from last year stated Jurgen Klopp’s side are aware of the player’s potential.
