"Liverpool Official Have Talked To Us" - Agent Confirms Transfer Interest

Liverpool have been in contact with the Agent of Trabzonspor goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir, MySportDab reports.

Cakir has established himself as the Turkish club’s No 1 keeper since November, keeping five clean sheets in 20 Super Lig appearances for the fourth-placed outfit.

Liverpool are on the look-out for a new back-up shot-stopper to undisputed first-choice Alisson.

The Brazilian has been excellent for the Reds this season since a £65m switch from Roma last summer, having won the Premier League Golden Glove with 21 clean sheets in 38 appearances as one of two ever-present players alongside Virgil van Dijk.

Alisson has also been crucial in the Champions League, keeping five shut-outs in 12 appearances with the Merseyside outfit facing Tottenham in the final of the competition in Madrid on June 1.

But Alisson’s understudy Simon Mignolet is expected to depart Anfield this summer.

The 31-year-old has made over 200 appearances for Liverpool but was limited to just two outings last term in the domestic cup competitions and is likely to move on in search of more regular game-time.

Elsewhere, Loris Karius turned around his fortunes on loan at Trabzonspor’s Turkish rivals Besiktas and as it stands islikely to join the club permanently after the end of his two-year loan next summer.

However, speaking to Ajansspor, Cakir's agent claims Liverpool are lining up 23-year-old as the keeper to come in and provide back-up to Alisson.

He said: “Every team have scouts and some of them are following Ugurcan’s matches.

“Schalke haven’t made an official offer for him.I know Lille and Schalke are following him.


“Liverpool are also interested in him. Liverpool officials have talked with us, we had some contacts, but no official offer has come from them."
