Emre Mor’s agent, Muzzi Ozcan, has put many clubs, including Liverpool, on alert as he shared some cryptic details on Instagram.
The agent shared a photograph of the Borussia Dortmund midfielder with a caption that suggests Mor is up for a new challenge ahead of the next season:
“New Chapter, new book, new season ! Let The Hard Work Show The Beauty Wait For Us 2017/2018 ! We Are Coming @emre.mor9.”
As quoted by Turkish-Football, the agent said:
“Dortmund still want Emre however, they are not against him leaving on loan either. We have been permitted to hold talks with other clubs regarding a move.”
That should send a lot of alarm bells ringing as Mor is one of the highest rated players in the world and we have been linked with the player for a number of weeks.
There are a number of Premier League and foreign clubs who are looking to sign the youngster up even though it is not clear as to whether Dortmund want to sell him or loan him out. Frankly, we already have a lot of young players in the side and what we need is someone who can start for the first-team. A world-class signing or two would greatly help us ahead of the new season, even though Mor has the potential to be one of the best.
It does seem highly unlikely that Dortmund would be willing to sell one of their rising stars and loaning him out does seem to be the right option for them. They also have a new man at the helm, the former Ajax manager Peter Bosz, who has a history of giving young players a chance.
The Instagram update could speak about linking up with Bosz as Mor expects more playing time too. The former Ajax manager did field a very youthful side even in the Europa League final, something that many would expect with a new look Dortmund ahead of next season.
We could possibly get Mor on loan but given our recent history with loanees at the club, it would mean a swift return to Germany for the 19-year-old.
