Real Madrid star Nuri Sahin has agreed a deal to join Liverpool on a season-long loan.

The Turkish international had looked set to join Arsenal, but reportedly the Gunners could not reach a compromise over a future fee for the 23-year-old.

According to the BBC Liverpool offered to pay a larger percentage of Sahin’s £115,000 a week wages for the duration of the loan, and that swung the deal in their favour.

Sahin will not be available for the Reds match against Manchester City tomorrow, but is expected to undergo a medical this weekend.

The 23-year-old had looked set to join Arsenal, but the Gunners failed to reach an agreement with Real Madrid over a future £14m fee for the Turkish star.

Reports suggest Arsene Wenger is now exploring a range of alternatives, and could possibly revive a move for Rennes and France midfielder Yann M’Vila.

But with less than a week to go before the transfer window shuts, Wenger will have to move fast to secure a replacement for the departed Alex Song.
