The Trabzonspor starlet has scored four times and grabbed eight assists this season, and United were thought to be at the head of the queue.

However a report from Asist Analiz claims it is in fact Liverpool who are closing in on the signing of the talented teen.

After seeing an initial offer of £18million rejected, it is understood the Turkish side have demanded £20million and 15% of any future transfer.

The starlet has also drawn comparisons with Galatasaray legend Gheorghe Hagi and was watched by scouts from Old Trafford as well as Lille.

Trabzonspor chairman Ahmet Agaoglu sensationally confirmed: “Our players have been watched closely for a long time.

“Today, Manchester United and Lille scouts were at the game.

“It makes us very proud that Trabzonspor players are on the radars of the biggest clubs in Europe.”
