Liverpool and Manchester City are reportedly set to battle it out for Trabzonspor star Abdulkadir Omur.

According to the Express, the 19-year-old is wanted by the Premier League’s current top-two clubs in January.

The Turkey Under-21 international, who is also thought to be interesting Bournemouth, is valued at around £25million and has been dubbed the ‘Turkish Lionel Messi’.

Having established himself at senior level over the past 12 months, Omur, who can play on either wing or as a number 10, has rapidly become one of Europe’s hottest prospects.

When recently asked about a move to Anfield the starlet said: “Liverpool is a very important club.

But the most important thing is Trabzonspor’s interests. If my club tell me I can go, I’ll go.

And if they tell me to stay. We’ll see.”

It is believed that the Reds will only make a move should they lose England international Adam Lallana.

Lallana has been linked with a return to his former club Southampton after struggling with injuries on Merseyside.
