Anfield defender on his way to Istanbul.
Emiliano Insua looks set to leave Liverpool after statements on his Twitter page suggested he was moving to Galatasaray.
The Turkish giants are thought to be thrashing out a deal to bring the Argentine left-back to the club on a one-year loan after becoming surplus to requirements at Anfield.
Insua was thought to be joining Italian side Fiorentina this summer but despite the deal all but being done, the player’s wage demands saw the transfer fell through.
The 21-year-old is unlikely to be a part of Roy Hodgson’s plans following the imminent arrival of Fulham defender Paul Konchesky and the re-signing of Fabio Aurelio.
Insua is thought to be in Istanbul finalising the details of the deal and undergoing a medical.
The player’s page read: “Road to Istanbul, in search of continuity, I hope to leave everything!
“I am waiting for news about my future. Eager to play and keep dreaming big!” (Sky Sports)
It seems that the young Argentine is on his way to Turkey, just as long as Galatasaray can stump up his wage demands, something Fiorentina were unwilling to so. The 21 year old left back has great potential but is also known for being occasionally positionally unaware.
Roy Hodgson clearly didn’t feel the need to try and stop the youngster from leaving the club and with Paul Konchesky and Fabio Aurelio at the club he probably can afford to offload the former Boca Juniors man.
