Sabah report Liverpool have offered €15m to Trabzonspor for their goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir.

Recent reports in Turkey said Liverpool were looking to offer Loris Karius plus money to sign the highly rated youngster but now it’s claimed they are looking for a straight cash deal with the Trabzon side.

The Turkish newspaper report Liverpool have made their move to sign the 23 year old, who has been linked with a move to Anfield in recent months. According to Sabah, Liverpool were looking to sign Cakir in January, but Karadeniz Firtinasi have rejected the offer.

It’s claimed Trabzonspor’s hierarchy decided to turn down the bid as they want to keep Cakir in their squad at least until the end of the season. In addition, Sabah say the Super Lig club are hoping Cakir will perform well at this summer’s Euros, which could strengthen their position.

Cakir has made 24 appearances in all competitions this season and has impressed with his performances. His contract will expire at the end of June 2024, but Trabzonspor have the option to extend the deal for a further year.
