The 21-year-old full-back has been at Liverpool for the past four
years, having joined as a youngster from Boca Juniors. However, he
struggled to break into the side and Tuesday’s signing of Paul
Konchesky by the Anfield club put another hurdle in his path.
“Galatasaray announce that Argentinian Emiliano Insua has joined
from Premier League club Liverpool on a one-year loan with a
purchase option agreement,” Gala said on their website. Insua made
44 appearances for Liverpool in total, the bulk of them coming last
season. He scored his only goal for Liverpool in the League Cup
against Arsenal last year. Having been a regular at youth levels,
Insua has two senior Argentina caps, both coming in World Cup
qualifiers last summer. He was strongly linked with Fiorentina
earlier this summer.
