According to Haber Global journalist Yağız Sabuncuoğlu, Liverpool are one of three sides who have made an enquiry about Turkish Süper Lig side Trabzonspor’s goalkeeper Uğurcan Çakır.
It’s been widely reported that Liverpool are considering making a move to find a new backup goalkeeper for Alisson Becker, especially if Simon Mignolet chooses to move on, which no Liverpool fan would hold against him…from a selfish perspective, he’s a very good number two!
Çakır’s performances last season earned him a call up to the Turkish national side, so would prove a more than able back up. The two other teams who have made enquiries about him are Lille and Celta Vigo, so we should be in pole position to complete a deal if we are indeed interested.
It’s the first we’ve heard of this one, so keep your eyes peeled for future developments…
