Galatasaray join Liverpool in race for Anzhi Makhachkala striker

Turkish giants Galatasaray have joined Liverpool in the race to sign Anzhi Makhachkala striker Lacina Traore.

Traore was expected to join Juventus, but the Daily Express now reports that Galatasaray and Liverpool are chasing the 23-year-old striker.

Traore’s agent, Dmitry Selyuk told Izvestia: “Recent developments have not changed Traore’s relationship with Anzhi.

“Moreover, he believes that the change of direction towards development will benefit the club.

“He loves to work with [new coach] Gadzhi Gadzhiyev, who has assured him that he counts on Lacina as the main striker.

“But I can’t deny that in the case of a decent proposal that suits both us and Anzhi, Lacina could still change club.

“The interest in Traore in Russia and Europe is quite large.

“Therefore, if we get a good offer in the winter I think the leadership of Anzhi will let him go.

“But there are not many teams that could afford to pay the price for the player.”
