Liverpool transfer news: Euro giants join race for Mexican star striker Raul Jiminez
Turkish Super League giants Fenerbahce are planning to bolster their attacking options over the summer transfer window.
Fener are on the look-out for reinforcements following reports linking star striker Robin van Persie with a summer exit while Moussa Sow’s loan deal expires at the end of the season.
Turkish-Football can reveal that the Istanbul giants have sent scouts to Portugal to monitor the Mexico international Raul Jiminez.
However, the 25-year-old’s price tag may prove to be a stumbling block for Fener. Jiminez joined Benfica for £18.7 million last summer and has three years remaining on his contract.
According to Squawka, Premier League giants Liverpool are also eyeing a move for the Mexico international.
Per the source, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp wants to improve his attacking options with Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge both struggling to nail down a starting place.
Raul Jimenez has been in impressive form for the Portuguese giants Benfica with five goals in 13 apperances.
