The club had previously failed with an approach for Toure earlier in the summer, with the player unsure about the move.

But now after talks with Reds boss Brendan Rodgers, it appears that Toure is now warming to the idea and Trabzonspor president Ibrahim Haciosmanoglu claims a deal is close to beind done.

"We have agreed terms with Kolo Toure and we will bring him to the club," he told Hurriyet.

Liverpool are ready to let Toure - who joined last summer on a free transfer from Manchester City, penning a two-year deal - leave the club, having bolstered their defensive options in recent weeks with the signing of Dejan Lovren from Southampton.

Ambitious Trabzonspor are hoping 33-year-old Toure will be joined by Turkey international striker Mevlut Erding, and they are locked in talks with Saint-Etienne over his signature.

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
