According to Liverpool, they are keeping an eye on the Turkish wonderkid Burak Ince, according to Goal.
The Reds are not only in the pursuit, but European heavyweight Bayern Munich and other Premier League rivals, Manchester City, also said to track the 17-year-old.
“My biggest strengths for me are my shooting and dribbling ability,” the midfielder was quoted as saying.
“I want to play regularly in Altinordu’s first team, and then I want to go to Europe. I like the Bundesliga, La Liga and the Premier League.
“I also dream of playing for Barcelona one day.”
The youth has played 26 times in TFF 2. Lig-outfit Altinordu FK, which registers five goals this period.
While interest in Barcelona is likely to open eyes from the Liverpool fan base, that does not necessarily rule out a move to Anfield for the prospect.
The priority should still be for us to pursue a proper replacement of Gini Wijnaldum, where loss of durability in the middle of the park is likely to be an issue next period if we do not address it.
Nevertheless, we have seen the club take an interest in bringing the best upcoming talent to Merseyside where possible, and if Ince has such an exciting future as some speculate, a potential move could be very worthwhile in the long run – race.
