A number of Liverpool fans have voiced their opposition to the club’s reported transfer interest in Norway striker Alexander Sorloth.
Turkish media outlet Fanatik claimed that the Reds are among several clubs across Europe tracking the 24-year-old, who is on loan at Trabzonspor from Crystal Palace and had briefly played alongside Daniel Sturridge at the Super Lig club earlier this season. According to Fanatik, Trabzonspor have the option of signing him permanently for just €6m (£5.24m) even though they value him at €25m-€30m (£21.8m-£26.2m). News of Liverpool’s interest in the player was shared on Twitter by @AnfieldEdition.

Sorloth flopped at Crystal Palace during his time in England, scoring just once in 20 games for the Eagles under Roy Hodgson, but has been highly prolific during his spell at Trabzonspor, with 25 goals in 39 appearances for the Turkish club this season. He is the Super Lig’s current top scorer, having struck 19 times in the division this term.
Despite his excellent form in Turkey, these Liverpool fans on Twitter don’t want to see him lining out at Anfield:
