Turkey winger to snub Liverpool in favour of Premier League rival – report

Ozan Tufan would prefer a move to Everton ahead of Liverpool, according to reports in Turkey

Liverpool are set to lose out to Everton in the race to sign Turkey winger Ozan Tufan, according to reports in Turkey.

Turkish media outlet Fanatik are suggesting that the Fenerbahce star would favour a move to the blue half of Merseyside ahead of the 18-time English champions in the summer transfer window.

The Toffees have appointed Southampton’s Ronald Koeman as their new manager and the Goodison Park outfit have already been linked with a host of players this summer.

Liverpool have already added four new players to their squad ahead of the 2016/17 Premier League campaign following the arrivals of Loris Karius, Sadio Mane, Joel Matip and Marko Grujic.

The Reds have made an impressive start to their pre-season campaign as Jurgen Klopp looks forward to his first full term in charge of the five-time European champions.

Liverpool were 1-0 winners against Tranmere Rovers at the weekend thanks to Danny Ings’s second-half winner in the local derby.

The Reds followed up their opening result with a landslide 5-0 victory over Fleetwood Town as Marko Grujic scored his first Liverpool goal on his first appearance for the Merseyside club.
