Wolves to rival Liverpool for keeper as they send scouts to watch star
Date published: Thursday 12th September 2019 9:32
Wolves will reportedly send a scout to watch Turkish goalkeeper Gokhan Akkan ahead of a potential January transfer window bid.
The 24-year-old stopper, had made an impressive start to the season with Super Lig side Caykur Rizespor, and has been linked with a move to Liverpool.
Indeed, the Reds are said to have already scouted the player, along with Trabzonspor keeper Ugurcan Cakir, as they search for a long-term back up for Alisson.
Unlike Akkan, Cakir, 23, has already made a senior breakthrough with Turkey and started their match with Greece back in May.
The report adds that Wolves scout a variety of different leagues across Europe each week, with scouts responsible for filing reports into the club’s database.
Despite being well-stocked at goalkeeper, with Rui Patricio and John Ruddy already on their books, Wolves are still looking at bringing another one in – with Will Norris currently on loan at Ipswich, leave Danish youngster Dane Andreas Sondergaard as third choice.
