Sahin set fro Reds switch
Liverpool are set to take Real Madrid midfielder Nuri Sahin from under the noses of Arsenal, according to reports in Spain.
The Gunners had looked to be favourites to secure a deal for the Turkish star but reports in the Spanish publication Marca say the player is heading to Anfield instead on a season-long loan deal. Arsene Wenger was hoping to wrap up a permanent deal for the player but Real still have high hopes for him and are only interested in a loan move, while Sahin himself also does not want to cut all ties with the Spanish champions. That makes Liverpool favourites to do a deal and reports claim the player's agent is on his way to Liverpool to complete the formalities, news which is sure to disappoint Wenger.
