Caner Erkin is a target for Liverpool and Chelsea this summer, according to the Fenerbahce midfielder’s agent.

The 25-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and both the Reds and the Blues are keeping tabs on the Turkey international ahead of potential summer swoops.

We have received offers but have not held direct talks with any club yet

And agent Batur Altiparmak has confirmed that the Premier League sides are interested in signing his client.

“I don’t usually like giving names but it is great for the player’s confidence that clubs like Liverpool and Chelsea are showing an interest,” said Altiparmak.

“However, a few clubs have made offers for Caner, two clubs from England have made a bid and he has also received offers from Spain and Italy.

“We have received offers but have not held direct talks with any club yet, first of all we are going to listen to Fenerbahce’s offer.

“We have not received an offer from Inter. Reports that we have held talks are a complete fabrication.”

Erkin has scored three goals in 30 league appearances for Fenerbahce this season.
