Abdülkadir Ömür stories explained by respected journalist

Posted by

We thought the news broken by Turkish outlet Ajanspor yesterday that Liverpool had shaken hands on a secret deal to sign Abdülkadir Ömür from Tranzonspor this summer was a little fishy…

And we were right to be skeptical, according to James Pearce of the Echo, who suggests their article is bogus.

Liverpool ‘shake hands’ on €20m playmaker; deal done, says Turkish outlet

Pearce says no deal has been agreed and Liverpool are not even interested in the 19-year-old playmaker, who’s been dubbed ‘The Turkish Messi’ in his homeland.

We are likely to purchase a new offensive midfielder in the summer; someone capable of playing in any of the three positions behind the forward – but our sources suggest it’ll be someone ready to immediately step into the first-team – rather than a youngster with potential.

As a result, the prospective new signing will cost a lot more than the mooted €20m it was rumoured to require to bring Ömür to Anfield.

Time will tell who that is, but for now, we’ve got a Premier League title to try and win!
