Daniel Sturridge has met twice with Besiktas’ president ahead of a possible summer move, according to reports on Saturday.
Sturridge’s future at Liverpool has looked ominous for some time now, with the striker never fitting under Jurgen Klopp.
The 28-year-old found first-team chances limited this season, appearing just 14 times before being loaned to West Brom in January.
Sturridge’s exit this summer is inevitable, but despite constant injury problems, he will not be without suitors.
According to Fotomac, the Englishman has twice spoken to Besiktas president Ahmet Nur Cebi with regards to a move to Turkey ahead of the new season.
Hasan Eken, a representative of Sturridge’s agency, also added fuel to the fire, saying: “If the fans want him conditions occurs and Sturridge could play in Turkey”.
Another transfer to emerge saw De Telegraaf link Liverpool with a move for highly-rated PSV Eindhoven winger Steven Bergwijn.
Bergwijn has won 18 caps for the Netherlands’ U21s, scoring three times, and he would add much-needed depth in wide areas.
Sport Witness claim that “Liverpool have been sending an official to almost every match since the winter break anyway, not just concentrating on the bigger clashes,” against the likes of Ajax and Feyenoord, which suggests the level of interest is high.
It is believed that Bergwijn could easily remain in Holland for the time being, though, with no official approach made thus far.
June has only just arrived but the transfer window is already in full flow. Expect a never-ending stream of rumours between now and August 31.
