Some Liverpool fans react after coach claims £17m table-topper is Anfield-bound

A number of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to have their say on Ugurcan Cakir’s former coach claiming that the 24-year-old is set for a summer move to Anfield.

Cakir is a talented young goalkeeper who plies his trade for Turkish side Trabzonspor, his efforts this season helping the team to the top of the Superlig table.

Liverpool reportedly saw a €15million (£13.5million) offer rejected last summer, according to Turkish outlet Karadeniz Gazete, and ended up signing Adrian instead.

Despite a glut of custodians at Liverpool, Cakir’s former coach, Sadi Tekelioglu, has claimed that the keeper will complete a transfer to Merseyside this summer for around £17million.

“50 million Euros may be too much for us (Turkish clubs), but not for Europe,” Tekelioglu told Ajannspor. “Ugurcan had a suitor last season. I gave Ugurcan an idea to go to the teams in England.

“Liverpool will transfer Ugurcan Cakır at the end of the season. Trabzonspor will not say no to Liverpool’s offer. I met with Ugurcan. He told me that Liverpool took care of him.”

While Cakir has done very well this season, the Reds don’t seem particularly in need of reinforcements in between the sticks.

Likewise, some Liverpool fans aren’t convinced by Tekelioglu’s comments and had their say on social media:
