Borussia Dortmund midfielder Nuri Sahin is set to make a decision on his future at the end of the week.
The Turkish international has been linked with a number of clubs across Europe, with his current deal in Germany set to run out at the end of next season.
Real Madrid are thought to be one of the leading clubs taking an interest in the 22-year-old, who made his senior debut in 2005 and has only spent a season away from the Signal Iduna Park on loan at Feyenoord.
After claiming the Bundesliga title last week, Sahin is now considering his options over his long-term future and could open the door to Liverpool should he decide on a move away from Germany.
“At the end of this week, along with the club, I will make a decision. My motivation is to win more and more in my career. Someday I want to win the Champions League.”
Kenny Dalglish is known to be in the market for an attacking midfielder, with a string of playmakers linked with a summer move to join Liverpool at Anfield.
Sahin is the latest name in the frame, and joins Ashley Young, Eden Hazard and Ezequiel Lavezzi as speculative Liverpool targets.
With American owners Fenway Sports Group vowing to invest in new players at the club and Kenny Dalglish eager to put his own stamp on the team, it could be a busy summer for the Liverpool hierarchy, with or without the addition of Sahin.
