Trabzonspor goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir is a target for Manchester United, Sheffield United, Everton and Southampton according to reports in Turkey.

Cakir, 23, has been linked with Liverpool previously, with the Reds apparently seeingg an offer worth €15m rejected.

Only last month Turkish paper Karadeniz Gazetesi claimed the Reds’ offer included €10m, plus infamous flop Loris Karius, with the hope of getting a deal done in January.

Now Fotospor report that Sheffield United have now had a €13m bid rejected as they look for an alternative to Dean Henderson.

The Blades are unsure whether they will be able to keep Man Utd loanee for another season after a superb season so far.

Turkish-football report that Sheffield United manager Wilder was in Turkey last weekend and watched the Intercontinental derby between Fenerbahce and Galatasaray.

 

 

The same source claim Trabzonspor ideally want €30m for Cakir but would consider all offers above €20m.

Manchester United are expected to send a club official to Turkey for Trabzonspor striker Alexander Sorloth and Cakir, according to Fotomac (via by Turkish-football).

United are among seven clubs who have requested accreditation for their scouting teams and club officials to attend the Trabzonspor clash against Rizespor today.
