Liverpool News: Turkish Giants Green Light Transfer Move For Reds Striker Amid Anfield Exit Talk

Besiktas manager Senol Gunes has given the board the green light to push ahead with a move for Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge according to the Fanatik sports newspaper.

Per the source, Gunes held a meeting with the Black Eagles club president Fikret Orman to discuss transfer plans.

The manager was presented with a five-man shortlist including Gignac, Benteke, Mitroglou, Bas Dost and Sturridge.

Gunes reportedly called for the England striker to be made a transfer priority.

The report claims that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp does not have plans for Sturridge next season.

Sturridge has 12 months remaining on his contract but has yet to be offered a new deal.

The Black Eagles would be keen on the 28-year-old but only for the right price as they have to operate within budget due to Financial Fair Play.

Turkish-Football did recently speak to Sturridge’s representative Hasan Anil Eken at the Octagon management company.

Eken made it clear that Besiktas had not made an offer in regards to the last round of transfer reports regarding a move to Turkey.

The agent made it clear that Sturridge’s €6.5 million salary could prove to be a problem if the Black Eagles were to make an offer.

The striker is happy at Liverpool but offers will be considered as he will be a free agent next summer unless offered a new deal.
