£27m bid tabled: Liverpool to be Man City to the signing of striker

With Dominic Solanke finally completing his move to Cherries Bournemouth, Liverpool are looking to dip their toe further in the transfer market.

Reports suggest they have lined up a replacement for the former Chelsea striker. The young lad could be replaced by Turkish youngster Abdulkadir Omur.

Omur has been handpicked by the Reds to replace Solanke after the striker’s  move to Bournemouth was finalised this week.

Omur plays for Turkish outfit Trabzonspor, and the club is said to have slapped a 30 million euro price bid on the youngster.

With two goals and four assists registered beside his name this season, the 19-year-old is also said to be prowled by Italian outfit Roma and bitter rivals Manchester City.

Omur’s move to Anfield is oddly going to happen however. The club has ruled out a January move and are very keen to hold on to the youngster who has been described as a versatile player.

The Turkish international has three years left on his contract and a move could prove hard to bargain.

But Turkish outlet Askam have claimed Liverpool have sweeten the kitty and could bait Trabzonspor into flogging the player in January.

Liverpool remain keen on shoring up their squad after their 2-1 defeat to champions Manchester City Thursday night at the Etihad.
