Chelsea & Liverpool fighting to sign Turkey star

Published Add your comment

The agent of Fenerbahce star Caner Erkin has revealed that his client is being pursued by a number of top European clubs ahead of the summer transfer window, namely - and perhaps most interestingly - Chelsea and Liverpool.

According to the Mirror, Erkin’s chief representative, Batur Altıparmak, confirmed that the English giants were both in the race for the player’s signature, and even hinted that they may have made official offers. The 25-year-old is out of contract in the summer, having been with his Turkish club since 2010, and his competence in both midfield and defence could be why Brendan Rodgers and Jose Mourinho have him on their radars.

"I don't usually like giving names but it is great for the players confidence that clubs like Liverpool and Chelsea are showing an interest,” Altiparmark said.

"However, a few clubs have made offers for Caner, two clubs from England have made a bid and he has also received offers from Spain and Italy.”

Whilst the speculation surrounding Erkin moving to either Stamford Bridge or Anfield hasn’t been so protracted as certain other individuals, both managers having already registered their intent on improving their respective squads and so it shouldn’t be brushed aside without consideration.

It’s thought that Chelsea are looking to add a striker and perhaps another midfielder to their roster, whilst Rodgers has been promised over £60million with which to get his team ready for Champions League football.
