Liverpool have received a boost in their pursuit of the Turkey international winger Emre Mor.
Turkish giants Fenerbahce have pulled of the race to sign Mor from Borussia Dortmund.
Fenerbahce director Mahmut Uslu told the Turkish outlet Aksam that the Yellow Canaries have given up hopes of signing Mor and believes Dortmund have no intention of letting the young star go.
Meanwhile, Fanatik claim that Liverpool are lining up Mor as a potential replacement for Philippe Coutinho. The Brazil international is being closely pursued by the La Liga giants Barcelona in recent weeks.
Per the source, Dortmund have set a £18 million price tag on the rising star.
