Liverpool are ready to make a £14 million bid for Galatasaray star Burak Yilmaz. The Daily Star says the 27-year-old enjoyed a prolific goal-scoring record with his old club, netting 55 goals in just 74 games for the Black Sea side.

And the Turkey international has carried on his fine form since his summer transfer.

Liverpool will have to dig deep for Yilmaz, with Galatasaray likely to demand a sizeable increase on the fee they paid for him.

But the Merseysiders are confident of convincing the hit-man with a significant increase on his current £35,000-per-week wage packet.
