Liverpool U21 manager Michael Beale has heaped praise on his young striker Samed Yesil.
The former Bayer Leverkusen man scored three goals in his last two appearances for Liverpool U21’s and could break into the first team this season.
“That is Samed,” Beale told Extratime.
“If he’s anywhere around the box the ball seems to fall for him and he scores. He’s like a magnet for the ball in the box.
“I thought he actually missed a couple tonight and he looked a bit frustrated but he keeps getting in there.”
Turkish newspaper HaberTurk, reported that that Liverpool are open to the idea of allowing Yesil to leave on loan so that he can gain first team experience but it seems the 21-year-old wants to try and prove himself in England this season.
The young striker struggled for playing time this season due to a double cruciate ligament injury that ruled him out until the turn of the year.
Yesil was born in Germany but his family originate from the Trabzon region on the eastern Black Sea coast of Turkey. The Liverpool youngster spent the summer on holiday in Turkey visiting Istanbul, Trabzon and Bodrum.
