Liverpool have rejected Turkish reports that they have agreed a £17million deal to sign Trabzonspor star Abdulkadir Omur, according to the Liverpool Echo .
It had been claimed that the Reds had “shook hands” on a deal which would see the 19-year-old ‘Turkish Messi’ move to Anfield in the summer.
The report even stated that Trabzonspor had asked Liverpool to keep the announcement of the deal secret as they didn’t want the news to upset the club’s supporters.
But the Echo say that the Reds have stated that no discussions over a move for the teenager have taken place, and that Omur isn’t on Liverpool’s list of transfer targets for the summer.
