Liverpool, Dortmund and RB Leipzig contact Juventus for Kenan Yildiz Transfers

While academy graduates such as Trent Alexander-Arnold and Curtis Jones are making their mark in the first team, young talents who joined Liverpool in their late teens such as Harvey Elliott, Ben Doak, and Connor Bradley are beginning to shine.

With the dismantling of the front three and the departure of veterans such as Jordan Henderson last summer, Liverpool has undergone a generational shift toward the next generation, and the acquisition of an 18-year-old striker with the potential to be one of the best in Europe is expected to further boost the strength of the team.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Liverpool, Borussia Dortmund, and RB Leipzig have all tried to contact Juventus in an attempt to acquire Turkish international Kenan Yildiz, but were immediately rejected.

He is mainly a second striker in Serie A and has played nine games in the top flight so far this season. The talented forward, who has been in the starting lineup in recent games and has also made three appearances for the Turkish national team at the age of 18, is being followed by a number of clubs.

With a contract that runs through June 2027, a move is unlikely to happen anytime soon. Juventus also has no intention of letting go of the gem they acquired on a free transfer from Bayern Munich in 2022, and the immediate task is to hone his skills at the Italian giants.

For Liverpool, too, it is not such a pressing issue, as they have a full complement of players up front. Liverpool has enough players up front, so this is not a very urgent issue for them, and in a club without a top or second striker position, it could be a repeat of Fabio Carvalho.

In any case, can the Turkish forward, who could break into Europe’s top scene in the next few seasons, become one of the best players in Serie A?
