Liverpool have joined the race for Turkish international midfielder Dorukhan Tokoz, according to a report from his native country by Fotomac.
They report that a queue is forming for the Besiktas midfielder, with Udinese having already asked about his signature – and the Reds have held early talks to test the water.
Earlier this month, Arsenal were linked with a swoop for the midfielder by Fotospor, and Fotomac report that the Turkish club want at least 10 million euros (£8.9 million) if they are to sell this summer.
Tokoz recently shone as Turkey saw off France 2-0 on the 8th June, outclassing Manchester United as the Turks won the midfield battle against the world champions.
That will likely immediately endear Tokoz to the Reds supporters as they clamour to find out more about their new midfield target.
At just 23 years old, Tokoz still has plenty of room to improve and of course Jurgen Klopp has an outstanding history of overseeing improvement in his players from a coaching perspective.
Liverpool should feel confident of outmuscling Arsenal for his signature if it comes down to a straight fight, because they can offer Champions League football and a genuine chance of silverware next season.
