Liverpool are looking all set to miss out on Inter Milan defender Caner Erkin for a second time this summer.

The Turkey international rejected a offer to move to Anfield as he ran down his contract with Fenerbahce earlier this year. Following that he went on to join Italian outfit Inter and signed  a four-year contract at the start of July. However, he has fallen out of favour with new Inter boss Frank de Boer and the Dutch tactician has reportedly told the defender that he is free to find a new club.

Now according to reports in Turkish news outlet Sporx, the defender is all set to return to Turkey to play for top flight champions Besiktas. And the only stumbling block in the way of an announcement is for Inter to waive their right to a fee for his signature. Inter were believed to be demanding £1.7m to part ways with Erkin. But with Erkin seen as a surplus to requirements, a move might materialize.

The 27-year-old was reportedly scouted by Liverpool pair Dave McDonough and Kevin Hunt back in March and they sent back positive reports to Anfield  before Erkin completed a free transfer move to the Serie A giants at the start of July.

With Alberto Moreno failing to make an impact as a left-back, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is desperate to sign a defender before the transfer deadline.


    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
    You will never walk alone.
