Argentinian media are suggesting that River Plate will hope that Liverpool make a move for Sevilla winger Lucas Ocampos this summer.
Ocampos to Anfield?
The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield over the past week with the Reds currently struggling with their attacking prowess in the Premier League.
According to El Intransigente, Ocampos is keen to make a move to Merseyside which would see his former side pocket a cool €2.5m (£2.2m).
Ocampos typically plays on the left-hand side but can also switch to the other side as well – versatility is a trait which Jurgen Klopp appreciates.
Transfer Tavern Verdict
Ocampos would be a fantastic signing for Liverpool. Not only would it be a huge wake-up call for the famous front three but it will significantly bolster the squad’s depth.
Putting genuine fear into underperforming players that they may find themselves on the bench may be a significant factor in performance levels, following claims made by Trent Alexander-Arnold suggesting that Liverpool went into games always expecting to win. (cited by Anfield Watch).
However, with the club’s owners Fenway Sports Group opting not to sanction a great deal of funds for Klopp in January, the question remains as to whether this trend will stay the same in the summer.
