Liverpool’s reported interest in Turkish star is bad news for 23-year-old

Liverpool have reportedly joined the race to sign Dorukhan Tokoz.

According to Fotomac, the Reds are eyeing up a swoop for the midfielder, who impressed in his first season at Beskitas following a move from Eskisehirspor.

Tokoz’s form saw him called up to the Turkish senior side for the first time in March.

He has since earned five caps for his country and wowed against World Champions France recently.

His stock has certainly been rising, and Italian club Udinese have already seen a £7.1 million rejected (via The Sun).

Beskitas apparently want closer to £10 million, but they could well demand more from the Reds.

 

Tokoz operates as a defensive midfielder, meaning him pitching up at Anfield could be bad news for Marko Grujic.

TBR’s view

Grujic enjoyed a good loan spell with Hertha Berlin last season, and a number of fans want to see him involved in 2019/20.

The Serbia international might have been hoping for some involvement – perhaps as Fabinho’s backup – but a successful deal for Tokoz would surely see him leave the club.

Perhaps he’d head out on loan, although he’s had two temporary moves in the last two seasons.

Tokoz is the same age as Grujic, which suggests that the former Red Star Belgrade ace would be moved on to accomodate him.
