Man Utd make £11.6m bid for Liverpool target

Manchester United continue to be linked to a number of attacking players during the summer transfer window.

So far we have made three signings but all of a defensive nature.  Experienced goalkeeper Lee Grant has been brought in as a backup, full-back Diogo Dalot has joined from FC Porto and central midfielder Fred has been brought in seemingly with the objective of giving Paul Pogba more freedom.

The majority of attacking players we have been linked to are right wingers – Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale, Chelsea’s Willian and Internazionale’s Ivan Perisic all strongly mentioned.

According to reports in Turkey (via TeamTalk), we have now launched an £11.6 million bid to sign Liverpool target Yusuf Yazici from Trabzonspor.

The 21-year-old has spent his entire career to date with the Turkish Super Lig outfit having progressed through their youth system before breaking into the first team setup in 2015.  He has since gone on to become an important player for the Turkish side, producing 18 goals and 18 assists in his 66 appearances.

Yazici’s performances have seen him go on to represent the Turkish national team on nine occasions on way to attracting the attention of a number of top Premier League clubs.

TeamTalk claim that Liverpool are among the clubs to have registered their interested in signing the highly-rated attacking midfielder.  Yazici predominately a central attacking midfield role but also has experience on both weeks.

And it seems that we have stolen a march on our Premier League rivals as the report from TeamTalk citing Turkish outlet Haberturk is that we have made an opening bid worth £11.6 million for the youngster’s signature.

However, it looks as though we are going to have to dig deeper in our pockets as the report states that the bid has already been rejected by Trabzonspor.

One thing working in our favour is that TeamTalk report that Yusuf Yazici is keen to make a move to the Premier League.  We shall have to wait and see if Jose Mourinho and the Manchester United hierarchy will come back with an improved bid and whether any other clubs will make an offer in the meantime.
