Turkish international full-back Caner Erkin was snapped up by former Inter boss Roberto Mancini as a free agent despite offers from the Premier League.

Erkin joined the Italian giants last month but in an unexpected twist he could already be headed for an exit following Mancini being sacked and replaced by Frank de Boer.

The Dutch manager has not included Erkin in his team so far and does not have plans for the experienced full-back in his squad.

Liverpool were closely linked with a move for Erkin prior to his move to Inter according to the Express.

The Premier League giants have also been linked with Erkin in the past but a deal never materialised.

The Reds are on alert regarding his current situation and while an offer has not been made a source close to the player revealed to that there has been interest from the club as well as other Premier League sides.

The Turkey international’s agent Batur Altiparmak confirmed that his client faces a tough decision and that another move could be on the cards.

“Caner can remain at Inter and he can go away. It is not yet decided, but it will be Caner deciding it,” Altiparmak told

“Currently there are three possible options: he can stay at Inter and fight for a place, otherwise he can continue to play in Italy or in another European country.”

Everton were also in the race for Erkin according to a report from the Express last month.
