Liverpool and Italian giants Napoli are interested in signing Trabzonspor midfielder Abdulkadir Omur, according to the latest transfer gossip.
Both clubs have reportedly sent scouts to monitor the progress of the 19-year-old who is said to be similar in style to former Red star Phillipe Coutinho.
Liverpool is set to clear out a host of fringe players in the summer and Omur is apparently seen as an ideal replacement for some of the older players in his position like Adam Lallana.
Napoli is said to have already requested a price from his club Trabzonspor and are considered the front runners for that reason alone.
Omur is seen as one of the brightest talents in Turkish football, he has already featured for the Turkey U17, U19 and U21 sides and it is just a matter of time before he receives a full call up to the senior side.
It will be in the best interests of both Napoli and Liverpool to make their move for the teenager before he is elevated to the senior national team when his price will undoubtedly increase significantly.
