Liverpool starlet Samed Yesil could be set to leave the club, with reports suggesting that Besiktas are targeting a move for the German youth international.

According to The Metro, the Turkish outfit - who currently lie third in the Super Lig table - scouted the 19-year-old recently and have already opened talks about signing Yesil and are poised to offer the Reds a sum of around £2 million to land his signature on a permanent basis.

Striker Yesil joined Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen in 2012 yet has not managed to break into the first-team setup in the Premier League since arriving Anfield.

He did, however, managed to make two appearances in the Capital One Cup last season, starting under Brendan Rodgers for games against both West Brom and Swansea City.

He was also an unused substitute during Liverpool's Europa League clash against BSC Young Boys and again during the 1-0 win over Anzhi Makhachkala last October.

Yesil has not featured in any capacity for the first XI this season, though, and he has suffered a number of injuries during his short stint on Merseyside.

With Liverpool star Daniel Sturridge expected to miss up to two months with an ankle injury suffered in training, it remains unclear if Rodgers will be willing to offload another striker.

However, with Yesil unlikely to be considered as a fitting replacement for the England international, a move could be the perfect result for all parties concerned.
