Liverpool set to complete the loan move for Turkish midfielder

nuri-sahin-liverpoolLiverpool expect to follow victory over Hearts in the Europa League play-off first leg with the signing of Nuri Sahin from Real Madrid. Brendan Rodgers is in pole position to land the long-time Arsenal target and could complete a season-long loan for the coveted Turkey international on Friday.

Sahin is due to arrive on Merseyside for a medical before Liverpool's game against Manchester City on Sunday and would represent a major coup for Rodgers as he attempts to improve his midfield, having spent his allocated transfer budget on Joe Allen and Fabio Borini.

Official club statement today revealed Rodgers will be expecting to discover in the next 24 hours whether Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin will join Liverpool on loan.

Rodgers said: "Hopefully in the next 24 hours we will get some confirmation on that. It's quite far along. He's a very good footballer."

According to source, Liverpool have offered to pay more of Sahin's £120,000-a-week wage at Real than Arsenal have. They have also been helped by Rodgers' relationship with his former manager at Chelsea, José Mourinho, and the Spanish champions' reluctance to loan the German-born player to a club in the Champions League.
