Yilmaz As Possible Replacement For Suarez

Liverpool has set their sights on Burak Yilmaz of Turkish side Galatasaray.

According to Sky Sports, Brendon Rodgers is monitoring the forward as a possible replacement for Luis Suarez.

With heavy speculation surrounding the future of Suarez at Liverpool the manager has been forced to search for other attacking options in case the forward does not remain at the club.

This is looking increasing likely with Suarez being linked away from Anfield almost everyday. At present Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Real Madrid are in the running to sign the want-away Uruguayan centre forward.

Galatasary President Unal Aysal has said that he would be prepared to listen to offers for the former Trabzonspor player.

He said, “We have a set price for Yilmaz. If Burak wants to leave and our transfer demands are matched, we could accept a deal.”

Yilmaz was extremely impressive in his first season with Galatasaray and is regarded as one of the best forwards currently in Europe.

He managed an exceptional scoring rate last season with 32 goals in only 39 games.
