Liverpool & Everton linked Turkish international open to move says agent

Fenerbahce full-back Caner Erkin is open to a move abroad according to his agent Batur Altiparmak.

The Turkish international left-back has under six-months remanning on his current deal and is unlikely to extend his contract with Fenerbahce after recently falling out with head coach Vitor Pereira.

Altiparmak told “Like every Turkish player Caner would like to play for a top European club.” 

Inter are reported to be closing in on a €2.2 million deal for Erkin but the Italian giants could however, face competition from the Premier League according to the Express who claim that Liverpool and Everton are also in the race.

Mundo Deportivo went one step further and reported that Everton as well as Liverpool are both in talks with the Turkish international left-back.

The official Salzburg club website reported that Everton and Inter sent scouts to the Turkey v Austria international played last month which featured Erkin.

Erkin recently fell out with Fenerbahce head coach going into the Intercontinental derby against rivals Galatasaray and was subsequently dropped. The fiery left-back is expected to leave the club at the end of the season following the latest rift with the manager.

The 26-year-old has one goal and eight assists in all competitions for the Istanbul giants this season.
