Liverpool were very keen on Turkish international Emre Mor last summer, but missed out on him to Borussia Dortmund – and appear to have done the same again this time around.
The 19-year-old playmaker, who possesses wonderfully tricky feet, looks set for a permanent move to Fenerbahce, after just one season in Germany.
That’s according to the Express, who suggest that Mor hasn’t impressed sufficiently for the Bundesliga giants – and that with Ousmane Dembele, Christian Pulisic, Marco Reus, Mario Gotze and Andre Schurrle on the books in attacking midfield – he’s surplus to requirements.
Mor’s agent Muzzi Ozcan was at Fenerbahce’s headquarters in Istanbul today to finalise the transfer.
The teenager scored just once last term in his 19 appearances and a move back to his homeland will probably do him good, especially as his first-team options would seemingly be similarly slim at Liverpool.
Still, the club will no doubt watch his progress from afar, as Mor’s technical attributes and burst of pace are incredible.
