Galatasaray are lining up a summer bid for Liverpool target Keisuke Honda.
The Japanese star has been a long-term target for Liverpool, who have endured a miserable league season.
Fresh faces are expected in the summer as they attempt to challenge for a top-four spot once again and Honda has been touted as a possible midfield reinforcement.
Lazio came close to signing the CSKA Moscow playmaker in January but Liverpool's chances of landing him were boosted when the Serie A side failed to complete the deal.
But now Kenny Dalglish will have to beat off competition from Turkey if he is to land the 25-year-old, who is well known for his set-piece prowess.
According to reports in Turkey, Galatasaray are ready to join the race for Honda and hope a bid of around £9m will be enough to persuade CSKA Moscow to sell.
