Daniel Sturridge is reportedly close to joining Turkish side Trabzonspor.
The striker was released by Liverpool at the end of last season and is still to sign for a new club.
It is believed that the 29-year-old has received few, if any, offers from English clubs so has looked for a new team abroad.
ESPN report that Trabzonspor have made Sturridge an offer worth between £1.84million and £2.77million a year, including bonuses.
The report also says his mother and uncle, who also acts as his agent, have travelled to Istanbul and will arrive in Trabzon on Friday where they will be shown around the region and hold talks.
The Turkish club are thought to be confident of getting Sturridge to sign despite his apparent reluctance to relocate to Trabzon.
He is also believed to have held talks with DC United but they have concerns over his injury history.
Simon Jordan launched a stinging attack on Daniel Sturridge, describing him as a ‘problem player’ and a ‘divisive influence’ on young players.
The former Crystal Palace chairman Jordan would not consider handing Sturridge a deal if he was still in charge of a Premier League.

He told talkSPORT: “Not in any parallel universe would I sign Daniel Sturridge. Not for me.
“I wouldn’t even give him a pay-as-you-play deal.
“I wouldn’t want Sturridge in my dressing room or at my training ground around younger players.”

When asked to clarify his thoughts, Jordan then let rip into a scathing, no-holds-barred assessment of Sturridge’s attitude, discipline and application throughout his career.
He told talkSPORT hosts Jim White and Natalie Sawyer: “I think the conventional wisdom in the game is that Daniel Sturridge is a troubled, problem player.
“He’s a very, very, very talented footballer but he’s a divisive influence. Jurgen Klopp has never had him since day one he arrived at Liverpool.”
