Liverpool make a £22million offer for Trabzonspor ace Ugurcan Cakir
Posted on May 22, 2020
According to Turkish journalist Serdar Ali Celikler, Liverpool have made a bid of £22million offer for Turkish goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir.
Celikler confirmed that the Reds have made an official bid for the player. Cakir is also set to benefit financially from the deal.
“I can confirm that Liverpool have made a bid for Ugurcan Cakir, which is worth £22m.”
The 24-year-old has been in impressive form for Trabzonspor since his debut in 2018. He is one of the best young goalkeepers in Turkey and made his national team debut last year, according to iSports football API.
In Alisson Becker, Liverpool have arguably the best goalkeeper in goal. It is in the backup area for the Brazilian that the club is found lacking.
Although Adrian has done well when called upon, a spate of high-profile errors by him have seen the club exit the FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League. With Loris Karius now back at the club, Jurgen Klopp has a decision to make regarding next season’s squad.
Alisson’s injuries this season have shown how important a backup goalkeeper can be. According to football data provider iSports API's report, Klopp is keen to ensure all bases are covered in the future.
Adrian may consider his future at the end of the campaign and could go in search of regular football. The Spaniard was earlier linked with a return to Real Betis in search of first-team football.
However, one obstacle against the deal being completed could be Cakir’s ambition to play regularly. It is difficult to see him usurp Alisson at this point in time.
