In a recent interview with Turkish-Football, Trabzonspor goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir’s agent, Engin Kirkpinar confirmed that Liverpool are among a whole host of clubs looking to acquire the services of his client. Kirkpinar shed some light on Cakir’s future and said (via Turkish-Football), “Liverpool are among the sides interested in Cakir and have been monitoring his progress.
“Trabzonspor value Cakir as being worth a minimum €20m and will not sell him in January.
“An end of season move could, however, be on the cards.”
Cakir’s Underwhelming Start To This Campaign
The 23-year-old has endured a difficult start to this campaign after securing only one clean sheet in the Turkish Super Lig thus far. He has played in 18 matches for Trabzonspor this term, conceding 24 goals while earning just one shutout across all competitions. Even though his numbers have not been too impressive this season, the Turkish keeper has proven that he is a good distributor of the ball by notching up one assist for his team.
Cakir is a product of the Trabzonspor youth system and is destined to have a bright future in Turkish football. The Antalya-born talent has already earned two international caps for the Turkish national side. However, he is too inexperienced and is yet to prove his worth in a foreign league. Thus, the jury is still out on whether he has all the makings of a top keeper.
What Will The Turkish Shot-Stopper Add To Klopp’s Team?
Cakir boasts fast reflexes which allow him to pull off some world-class saves for his team. He remains calm when in possession of the ball and can pass the ball out accurately from the back. The Turkish custodian is good with his positioning but needs to work on his ball-handling.
Do The Reds Need To Sign Cakir?
Jurgen Klopp already has Alisson Becker as his undisputed first-choice keeper while Adrian fills in as the back-up goalie in his squad. Hence, there is no need for the Merseyside club to recruit another shot-stopper at the moment.
Adrian has already shown this season that he can be a worthy deputy to Alisson. Liverpool also have the young keeper, Caoimhín Kelleher, who is quite highly-rated, at Merseyside. Thus, it makes no sense for Klopp to sign an inexperienced goalie like Cakir, who is currently underperforming in Turkish football.
