Liverpool & Arsenal target has €13m price-tag

Published Add your comment

Liverpool and Arsenal striker target Burak Yilmaz is available for €13million, according to reports.

The Galatasaray star is close to a move to Lazio, with the Turkish side’s sporting director confirming that an official meeting has taken place between the two parties.

However, a fee is yet to be agreed, with money the only stumbling block over a move.

Sky Sports reports that the Serie ‘A’ outfit have offered €10million, but Gala want €3million more for the highly-rated 28-year-old.

"This is the first official meeting with Lazio. For Yilmaz's move to Lazio, it is only a matter of money,” Tulun told

"Should the right offer arrive, he can leave Galatasaray."

Both the Gunners and Reds have been linked with a move for the player this summer, as they look to strengthen their attack before the transfer window closes next week.

Arsene Wenger is relatively short of options up-front this season, despite adding Yaya Sanogo to the Arsenal ranks on a free transfer.

The north London outfit have subsequently missed out on a number of additional targets, meaning Olivier Giroud is the only other central striker available at the Emirates Stadium.

Much of Liverpool’s summer has revolved around the future of Luis Suarez, with the Uruguayan linked with a move away from Anfield.

The 26-year-old now appears set to stay on Merseyside, but Brendan Rodgers isn’t flush with choices himself in attack.

Daniel Sturridge is the only other senior striker in form, and the arrival of Yilmaz would certainly provide the Liverpool manager with another option.

And, if he or Wenger want to bring the striker to England, they now know the figure to pay to land the player.
