Why Liverpool Should Move For Emre Mor This Summer
Jurgen Klopp’s summer transfer window this year is not going according to plans as he had to miss out on top transfer target Virgil van Dijk. The club is also not ready to meet the valuation of Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah and are ready to wait patiently to land their targets for next season.
However, that has not stopped Klopp from looking elsewhere for additions and according to reports, they have been offered the chance to land Turkish sensation Emre Mor this summer. The report claims that Jurgen Klopp is convinced that he is a superstar for the future and is ready to sign him on a loan deal with an option to make it a permanent one after a year.
Born and brought up in Copenhagen, Denmark, Mor started his youth career with Lyngby BK and made a name for himself in the first team, playing for Nordsjælland, making 13 appearances in the 2015-16 season. His performances attracted interest from all over Europe last summer but Thomas Tuchel was successful in luring him to the Signal Iduna Park and has used him as a backup in the recently concluded season.
Having represented Demark up to the U19 level, More shifted his allegiances to Turkey, where he already has 10 senior caps, all at the age of just 19. Capable of playing as a centre-forward or on the wings, Mor is a right-winger who loves to speed past opponents with every chance he gets.
He is one of the most exciting dribblers up for the show at his age in Europe, while his passing and crossing are also commendable. He has a thunderous foot that can score long rangers but he has to work on his finishing in the future. He can take on his man to go beyond the back line and cross. He is also equally adept at cutting inside and freeing up space in the final third.
He is not too strong and is a bit wayward with his passing but at 19, he will only get better with more time under his belt. He is versatile and can play in a number of roles and he could be the dynamic player that can act as the utility player for Klopp for years to come.
He is not expected to be the first choice next season but Mor is a talent for the future and Klopp, who has the ability to get the best out of such players, could be the perfect mentor for him in his future.
