Stephan El Shaarawy and Arda Turan linked with Liverpool moves

Liverpool have been linked with both AC Milan striker Stephan El Shaarawy and Atletico Madrid winger Arda Turan in today’s media.


The Reds may be looking to bolster their attacking options in January following the departure of Fabio Borini on a season-long loan deal to Sunderland at the end of the summer transfer window.

The Liverpool Echo are today reporting the Reds’ interest in Italian forward El Shaarawy:

Another forward is sure to be a priority for Brendan Rodgers in the coming transfer windows, with Victor Moses only on loan and moves for Willian, Diego Costa and Henrikh Mkhitaryan scuppered in the summer.

Italian football website Tutto Mercato, Liverpool and Arsenal are interested in signing Turkish attacker Turan from Atletico Madrid.

Turan recently signed a contract extension at the Vicente Calderon, but the 26-year-old has caught the eye of both the Reds and the Gunners.

70 days until the transfer window reopens and we think both of these rumours are highly unlikely to come to fruition.

Meanwhile Liverpool youngster Andre Wisdom has completed his loan switch to join Steve McLaren’s Derby County.

The Reds defender will gain valuable first team experience at the Championship club, with many believing the deal is a sweetener from Liverpool to sign Rams midfielder Will Hughes in January.

The 20-year-old expressed his excitement at the move through his Twitter account on Monday evening:
