Liverpool FC transfer news: Liverpool interested in Turkish keeper Ugurcan Cakir

The Mirror claims that Liverpool are interested in 23-year-old goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir.

The Trabzonspor keeper is one of the best in the Turkish league, and the report adds that Liverpool contacted the club over Cakir’s availability.

Cakir played 20 games for Trabzonspor in the league last season and represented the national team in a friendly.

The report adds that Jurgen Klopp does not want to lose Simon Mignolet in the summer, and the German recently claimed that he saw the Belgian’s future at Liverpool.

However, Cakir is a target for the Reds, according to the report, and Liverpool are short of goalkeepers ahead of their US tour.

Caoimhin Kelleher and Vitezslav Jaros picked up injuries recently while Kamil Grabara will join Huddersfield on loan. Alisson is still away on a break after winning the Copa America, and the Reds have moved for free agent Andy Lonergan.

An interesting link for Liverpool

The Turkish keeper could develop into a world-class keeper, however, the Reds already have one of the best in the world guarding the net.

Alisson helped us win the Champions League title, and kept the most number of clean sheets in the competition.

The Brazilian also won the Golden Glove in the Premier League, while Mignolet is a great presence behind the scenes.

Cakir could only come in if Mignolet leaves in the summer, and it could be an interesting summer regarding who the No.2 keeper would be at Liverpool.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998. Liverpool addict, F1 fanatic!
