Current specualtion is that Liverpool left back Emiliano Insua is heading to Galatasaray in a deal trying to be clinched before the transfer window closes later today.
The Argentinian has been deemed as surplus to requirements at Anfield this summer and moves away from the club have been in progress since before Roy Hodgson arrived to take over at the helm. The player has so far seen moves to Italy collapse with both Fiorentina and Genoa, even though on arrival at the club Hodgson seemed happy to work with the player, it seems his future elsewhere had already been decided.
The youngster who already has U20, Olympic and Senior honours with the Argentina national team has made 62 appearances for the club, scoring one memorable goal against Arsenal in the process. The defender arrived at the club in November 2006 on an initial 18 month loan deal.
Insua is credited with saying on his Twitter account this afternoon and evening:
“I am waiting for news about my future. eager to play and keep dreaming big!”
“Road to Istanbul in search of continuity, I hope everything goes well!”
Official confirmation on the interest or proposed move is yet to be issued by either Liverpool or Galatasaray. News from Turkish sources is that further information is expected first thing in the morning from the club that already have former Liverpool players Harry Kewell and Milan Baros amongst their ranks.
