Liverpool striker Samed Yesil says he doesn’t want to leave the club and is caught in two minds over whether to move his career to Turkey.
Yesil confirmed that Trabzonspor have made an offer to Liverpool for his services, but he is yet to enter into any negotiations.
Yesil was signed by Brendan Rodgers as an 18-year-old in 2012 after making five appearances for Bayer Leverkusen’s first team.
The 20-year-old’s progress at Liverpool has been somewhat stuttered however after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament on two occasions.
He missed the majority of the 2013/14 season through injury and is yet to make an appearance for the Reds’ first team.

German born of Turkish descent, Trabzonspor are Yesil’s boyhood club, but he was quick to deny reports suggesting he has turned down a move to Fenerbahce due to the rivalry between the two sides.
“I am from Bayburt and I am a Trabzonspor fan, however, rumours that I rejected Fenerbahce because of the team I support are false,” Yesil is quoted by the Liverpool Echo as saying.
“I never said I would never play for Fenerbahce, I am a professional.
“Trabzonspor have made an offer to Liverpool. However, I have not entered talks with Trabzonspor yet. It’s an honour to be associated with them but I don’t want to leave Liverpool either.”
Liverpool are set to allow midfielders Suso,20,and Luis Alberto,21, to leave Anfield this summer along with 20-year-old striker Samed Yesil.
