Liverpool and Everton’s chances of potentially signing Fenerbahce’s Nani have been dashed as he now looks set to join Valencia, according to reports in Turkey.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is looking to strengthen his squad this season and that has certainly be shown with the recent capture of Sadio Mane.

There had even been reports suggesting Klopp was looking to improve his squad more, with reports in the Daily Express claiming that both Liverpool and Everton were interested in bringing the former Manchester United man Nani back to England’s top flight.

There were even reports suggesting that both Merseyside clubs had up until July 1 to trigger the Portuguese international relatively low release clause of £7million.

However reports are now suggesting that Nani is set to snub a return to England in favour of a move to La Liga.

According to Spanish publication AS, the 29-year-old is said to be closing in on a deal to sign for Valencia. A deal is believed yo have been agreed between Valencia and Fenerbahce, worth around £7million.

The clubs are now just waiting on a response from Nani, who is set to feature for Portugal against Poland tonight in the first quarter final clash of Euro 2016. The winger is said to give his answer after the game.

Fenerbahce president, Aziz Yildirim has also insisted Nani will be set to join the Spanish club for the news season.

Speaking to AMK Sport, Yildirim basically said: “Nani will play for Valencia next season”.
