Liverpool target Emre Mor set to feature for Turkey today

Turkey take on Slovenia today at the SRC Stoic stadium in the last of their Euro 2016 preparation games.

Fatih Terim is expected to field his strongest team with the European Champions just a week away.

Hakan Balta and Mehmet Topal are likely to start in defence. Topal is actually a defensive midfielder but Turkey are in the midst of a centre-back crisis with Omer Toprak left out and Serdar Aziz injured.

The central midfield duo is likely to consist of Galatasaray captain Selcuk Inan and Fenerbahce starlet Ozan Tufan provided added dynamism with his box-to-box role.

There could be a surprise upfront and in attacking midfield. The most likely line-up will include Arda Turan and Hakan Calhanoglu on the wings with Oguzhan Ozyakup as the central attacking midfielder and Cenk Tosun upfront.

However, Burak Yilmaz or Yunus Malli are vying for a place upfront as well and either could end up getting the nod.

Liverpool target Emre Mor could also make a surprise appearance after putting on an impressive display against Montenegro last week.

The Reds are preparing a move for the 18-year-old attacking midfielder according to ESPN but could face competition from Manchester United and Manchester City who are also in the race.

Several Premier League sides are expected to have scouts present at the game keeping tabs on Mor and other Turkish players.
