Trabzon based newspaper Karadeniz Gazetesi claims Newcastle United are making enquiries with regards to signing Trabzonspor midfielder Abdulkadir Omur.
Yesterday we covered reports from Turkey that Bournemouth have made a €9m plus offer to sign the highly rated youngster, who’s been dubbed the ‘Turkish Messi’.
According to Karadeniz Gazetesi, Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez is keen to sign Omur and the Spaniard wants the club to do everything they can to secure the signature of the player.
However, also according to the regional newspaper, Newcastle United will face competition from Liverpool and La Liga side Espanyol for the 19 year old.
Trabzonspor president Ahmet Agaoglu has recently confirmed they haven’t received any offers from Liverpool for Omur but said a couple of English mid table clubs are interested in the Turkish youngster.
Omur has scored two goals and provided three assists this season. The player is under contract with Trabzonspor until June 2022.
