Mainz 05 run riot against Liverpool today beating the Premier League giants 4-0 at the Opel Arena.

Turkish international forward Yunus Malli came on as a second half substitute and scored a brilliant goal from outside the penalty area just minutes after his introduction to make the scoreline 3-0.

Malli was one of three ethnic Turks born in Germany that featured in the clash with the other two being youngster Suat Serdar and Liverpool forward Emre Can.

Can plays for Germany while Malli represents Turkey. Players of Turkish origin born in Germany are eligible to represent both countries at international level.

Tottenham have been keeping close tabs on Malli over for the last season but missed out on his £7.5 million release clause which expired at the end of July according to the Daily Star.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is keen to sign the 24-year-old this summer but would have to increase his offer to £8.5 million which is his current valuation.
