Jurgen Klopp is not having the best of times in the transfer market and though he may be yet to land one of his top transfer targets this summer, he is still looking for possible additions to his squad, with less than a week left for the start of the season.
They have already added Dominic Solanke and Mohamed Salah to their attacking armoury but reports now claim that they are looking for yet another player in Yusuf Yazici.
Born and brought up in Trabzon, Turkey, Yazici started his youth career at the academy in his home town Trabzonspor and moved into the first team in 2015. Ever since, he managed six goals in 24 appearances in the top flight domestic league in the country and is one of the most exciting stars in the domestic circuit in Turkey.
He made his debut for the national side just a month ago and is slowly establishing himself at the highest level. He was previously linked with a move to Arsenal, PSV, Manchester United and Lyon and reports also claim that the Turkish side have already rejected offers from a couple of clubs for around £7m for his services.
However, the report claims that Jurgen Klopp is now immensely interested in his signature and is ready to meet his valuation. But do Liverpool need Yazici?
Capable of playing on the wing, the 20-year old is an attacking midfielder, who loves to play in the hole behind the striker. He is a bundle of energy and loves to put in the hard yards in the middle of the field and is a perfect fit for the ‘gegenpress’ that Klopp loves so much.
With strength and agility hardly an issue, Yazici is a decent dribbler who is confident with the ball at his feet. He can finish off chances with consistency while his versatility will allow him to play in the midfield at Anfield if he makes the move.
The Reds have loads of options in this position and have a squad that does not have fixed positions for the new season. Yazici will only add to this armoury and might actually help them compete in all the domestic cups this season.
At just 20, he might take time to adjust to the Premier League but he has attributes that will make him a handful in the country and could be a superb option for the Reds.
