Liverpool have made an offer of a swap deal for one of their targets in this January winter transfer window according to the latest reports coming out of the Turkish media.

According to the specific publication from Karadeniz Gazetesi, Liverpool have offered €10m plus loanee Loris Karius for highly-rated Turkish national team shot stopper Ugurcan Cakir.

Loris Karius has been on loan at Turkish Super League giants Besiktas since the start of last season and he has been able to maintain his impressive performances at the club despite starting poorly.

The German keeper is in his second season at Besiktas as a Liverpool loanee and the Reds are doubtful that his club would pay the required money for him and that has led to the offer of swapping him for Cakir who is younger and more athletic at the age of 23.

It would be hard to secure his signing from hometown club Trabzonspor as he has around four years left on his deal.

He would be the understudy to Alisson Becker at Liverpool if the goalkeeper were to make a move to Anfield.

Loris Karius has been at Liverpool since the club signed him from German side Mainz 05 in 2017.
