|Sahin only moved to Madrid last summer having impressed for Borussia Dortmund the season before, but spent most of his debut campaign in Spain out injured.|
The midfielder has 31 caps for Turkey and became their youngest ever goalscorer when he netted on his debut against Germany in 2005, aged 17.
The 23-year-old will now undergo a medical on Merseyside.

Start with spearing to Bolton and might have to look at loaning some out

beyond happy about this. What a midfield we have. Very excited for our prospects!

just need a striker now
Sat 25/08/12 at 10:47
Would have preferred a striker.

This surely spells the end for Adam and Spearing.
A cracking player to have.

Not sure if we have an option to buy at the end of the season, be great if we do.
Allen, Sahin, Lucas, Gerrard; quite a midfield 4.

We don't have The option to buy. Arsenal wanted that clause but real didn't. That's why we got him.
Sat 25/08/12 at 14:07
And we agreed to pay 70% of his salary whereas Arse would only offer 50%. I hope this bit of business does not bite us in the arse, further down the line.

Have we paid 5 million and arsenal were willing to pay 2 million? sure I saw that on something. Think it was Guillem Balague twitter.

Well i didn't see anything special in him at his time in madrid lets hope i am wrong for a year.
Sat 25/08/12 at 16:06
But have you seen how special was he at Dortmund?!
Sat 25/08/12 at 19:46
Haven't seen him for dortmund thats why i am being patient and hope he does well here
Sat 25/08/12 at 21:17
