Liverpool have been denied in their attempt to bolster their goalkeeping department with a new and quality shot-stopper after their bid for highly-rated Trabzonspor goalkeeper Ugurcan Cakir was rejected.
According to the Turkish media portal Sabah, Ugurcan Cakir is a big transfer target for Liverpool and the Premier League giants pressed home their interest in the 23-year-old shot-stopper by making a bid for him.
It was disclosed that Liverpool made a €15m (£12.8m) for the player and it was swiftly turned down by Turkish Super League club Trabzonspor.
The publication from the above mentioned Sabah claimed that Trabzonspor prefer a summer deal for the goalkeeper instead of a January swoop for him.

Ugurcan Cakir is a Turkish international goalkeeper who has his sights on the upcoming European Championships later this summer.
His asking price could skyrocket by this summer thus making things a bit complicated for Liverpool especially if he has a very good tournament with the Turkish team.
Liverpool see Ugurcan Cakir as a long-term successor to Adrian as the second choice shot-stopper behind first-choice player Alisson Becker.
Adrian was signed on a two-year deal last summer as a free agent and that will end next year.
