Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in Trabzonspor duo Ugurcan Cakir and Abdulkadir Omur, according to Ajansspor, with Caykur Rizespor goalkeeper Gokhan Akkan also on their radar.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have a habit of signing highly-rated youngsters well before they become household names with Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota and Conor Coady all going from strength to strength at Molineux in recent years.

And reports from the continent suggest that Wolves are looking at the Turkish market for their next inspired signing.

 

20-year-old Omur is a left-footed right winger who loves nothing more than drifting past opposition full-backs with a shimmy of his swivelling hips. Surprise surprise, a forward who produced ten assists in all competitions last season has been labelled Turkey’s answer to Lionel Messi with Aksam claiming that he is valued in the region of £27 million.

Omur’s Trabzonspor team-mate Cakir has also been a regular in the gossip columns with Liverpool apparently interested in a goalkeeper who has recently forced his way into the Turkish national team.

The Star claims that Cakir, who is known for his cat-like reflexes, will cost £14 million with Liverpool scouting him during a recent Super Lig clash with Fenerbahce.

24-year-old Akkan has made his name between the sticks too, helping Caykur Rizespor finish in mid-table last season.
