21-year-old center half wants to sign for Liverpool


Liverpool broke their transfer record to sign Dutch international Virgil van Dijk from the Saints in the last winter transfer window.

The 27-year-old star is one of the best central defenders in the world and he has transformed Liverpool’s back line with his leadership.

If reports are anything to go by then a Turkish center half wants to play for the Reds in future.

Bursaspor center back Ertugrul Ersoy has confirmed in a recent interview and claimed (Sabah translated by Turkish Football:

“I dream of playing for Europe, for me the pinnacle would be playing for Liverpool,” 

“I want to play for Liverpool but in the short term I aim to become Bursaspor captain and then perhaps move to the Bundesliga before making my next step.”

The 21-year-old defender has so far featured in 12 games in the Turkish Super Lig this season and scored 1 goal. He made his senior international debut last month in a friendly fixture vs Bosnia.

In the current campaign, so far, the Reds have played 12 league games and conceded just 5 goals. The Merseysiders do not need to strengthen their defense at the moment and should look to amplify the depth of their attack in January.
