Liverpool & Chelsea Wonderkid Target Nicknamed ‘Turkish Donnarumma’ Strikes Deal With Club Offering Champions League Football

Berke Ozer Altinordu Manchester City Chelsea

Altinordu have reached an agreement with Fenerbahce over the transfer of Berke Ozer and Baris Alici.

A source close to Altinordu confirmed the transfer of both players to Turkish-Football.

Ozer has attracted widespread interest over the past few seasons.

Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool have all scouted the 18-year-old.

The Reds kept tabs on Ozer throughout the 2017-18 campaign in both domestic and international competition.

City meanwhile have been monitoring the keeper since 2016.

The Citizens actually made an offer in 2017 but Ozer has made it clear he wanted first-team action, something City would be unable to provide.

“We want him to play in Europe, if Berke has a great season the odds of him moving to the Premier League are high,” Ozkan said in Emre Sarigul’s latest article for the Guardian.

“Manchester City already made him an offer. We will see what the future holds.”

Chelsea goalkeeper coach Christophe Lollichon and – loan player technical coach – Eddie Newton monitored Ozer and the club academy in January.

“It was great to see the youngsters growing their own food and learning the importance of what they put inside themselves,” he added.

“They are gearing these kids up for life. 

“Kids from all across Turkey and being developed into the stars of tomorrow. 

“We were impressed with Berke and other players here, we’ll continue to scout them.”

Fenerbahce have made assurances that Ozer will be in the first-team. The rising star will compete with Volkan Demirel as first-team keeper.

The Yellow Canaries were able to offer the prospect of Champions League football as an added incentive.

The Super Lig outfit do however, have to navigate past a tricky playoff round to make the group stage.

The young keeper was recently named in the Guardian Next Generation series, 60 best young talents in world football.
