Liverpool considering £9m deal to sign Besiktas midfielder

Liverpool are reportedly interested in a £9m deal for Besiktas midfielder Dorukhan Tokoz.

The 23-year-old, who is a five-time Turkey international, scored three times and registered three assists in 25 appearances for Besiktas during the 2018-19 campaign.

According to Fotomac, Serie A outfit Udinese have already had a £7m bid for the midfielder turned down.

The report adds that Liverpool are also in the race for Tokoz, though, with the Turkish giants willing to sell for £9m in this summer’s transfer window.

Tokoz only arrived at Besiktas in July 2018 but will see his contract with the Istanbul outfit expire in 2021.

Jurgen Klopp’s side, meanwhile, are also believed to be interested in signing Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy as a replacement for Simon Mignolet.
