ESPN is reporting that the Nuri Sahin saga may finally be coming to a close at Anfield. 

Coach Brendan Rodgers is quoted as saying that the deal is "almost done." 

Finalizing the capture would be something of a coup for Liverpool. They faced fierce competition from the likes of Arsenal, and were thought to have lost out due to their lack of Champions League football on offer.
