There’s interesting reports coming out of Turkey today.
Media outlet Ajans Spor are claiming a deal has been agreed with Liverpool and Trabzonspor for the transfer of Abdulkadir Ömür.
The player will arrive for €20m in the summer though; at the end of this season, they suggest.
Their tweet from this morning translates as follows:
“According to information that ajansspor have got from Trabzonspor, Liverpool have shaken hands with the Turks onthe transfer of Abdulkadir Ömür for 20 million euros. The agreement is hidden to prevent reactions from the fans. The explanation will be given at the end of the season.”
Ajansspor'un edindiği bilgilere göre Trabzonspor, Abdülkadir Ömür'ün transferi için Liverpool ile 20 milyon Euro karşılığında el sıkıştı. Anlaşmanın taraftarların tepkisinin önüne geçmek için gizlendiği, açıklamanın sezon sonunda yapılacağı öğrenildi. https://t.co/ogvJKW1u3v pic.twitter.com/Oo6ZS0FOgZ

Ömür is a playmaker who at 19 is a starter in the Turkish league already.
He has two goals and three assists this season, predominantly starting on the right wing.
The teenager is equally capable of playing as a no.10 or on the left, however, which is the kind of versatility Jurgen Klopp demands from his attackers.
We imagine these reports will be shot down by more respected sources pretty soon, in fairness.
The manner in which the publication suggests the deal is being ‘kept secret’ almost covers their back in terms of responsibility in regards to whether their report is correct or not.
