Spanish giants Atletico Madrid have made a bid for Manchester United and Liverpool target, Trabzonspor starlet Yusuf Yazici.

Turkish paper Hurriyet claim Atletico have made a €14million offer for the player, who is being watched by the Premier League big boys.

The 2o-year-old attacker has impressed with a couple of assists this season, but Trabzonspor do not want to sell him in January, however they are set to hold talks over the player’s future this winter.

Fanatik recently reported that Manchester United and Liverpool were interested in Yazici. While Monaco are now believed to be preparing an offer to match that of Atletico’s.

Yazici, who only signed a new contract in March this year, still has five years remaining on his deal with the Super Lig club, but if he left for €14million  he would become the second most expensive Turkish international.

Cengiz Under joined Roma on a €15million move from Basaksehir last season.

Yazici, scored six goals and provided 10 assists in 22 outings last season for the club he joined as a youth player nine years ago.

Liverpool and United’s interest has already been well documented and Ronald Koeman’s Everton are also said to have had the player watched, according to the Daily Star.

Yazici made his debut for the senior Turkey international side in June and registered an assist in their win over Kosovo.

However, in August Trabzonspor chairman Muharram Usta said: “I want to see Yusuf here for our 50th year anniversary squad.

“He will be sold when the time is right, Yusuf will be an ambassador for the club and reach the highest level.”
