Liverpool are reportedly ready to cut short Nuri Sahin’s loan spell at Anfield, putting Borussia Dortmund on alert.
Sahin left Dortmund in 2011 to join Real Madrid, where he struggled to establish himself in Jose Mourinho’s side, leading to him joining Liverpool on a season-long loan last summer.
Dortmund have confirmed they are interested in re-signing the Turkey international, who made a bright start to the season at Anfield but has found himself out of the starting line-up in recent weeks.
And according to the Daily Mail, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers is considering terminating the 24-year-old’s loan deal as the club look to reduce their wage bill.
Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc last week admitted that the Bundesliga giants are interested in bringing Sahin back to the Signal Iduna Park.
“Nuri is one of ours and we’re closely monitoring his situation,” he told Bild.
“The problem in Liverpool is he is not playing in his best position.
“We have previously said that we might make a move if he says he only wants to play at Dortmund. We have to remain realistic, though. Nothing has changed in that regard.”
