Liverpool: Spanish source makes big Federico Valverde claim

Liverpool: Spanish source makes big Federico Valverde claim -Liverpool Transfer Rumours

As per reports out of Spain, there has been a big transfer update involving Liverpool and manager Jurgen Klopp as he personally eyes a perfect signing for the club.

The Lowdown: Interesting summer ahead…

Liverpool could be set for an interesting summer ahead with Fenway Sports Group yet to confirm new deals for star players like Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane – who could both leave at the end of next season as things stand.

There have been rumours of possible future replacements for the former in particular, not excluding Villarreal sensation Yeremi Pino, as the Reds face a possibility of being without their Egyptian superstar post-2023.

Klopp also has his eyes on bolstering other key positions in the squad, like his central midfield, with a pretty significant update now coming to light involving Real Madrid star Federico Valverde.

The Latest: Klopp set to push…

According to a Spanish source, the German has personally set his sights on Madrid’s man, showing a ‘serious interest‘ whilst considering Valverde a potential signing who ‘fits perfectly in his style of play’.

As well as this, it is believed Klopp ‘will try to take advantage’ of the 23-year-old’s worsening relationship with Bernabeu boss Carlo Ancelotti.

Indeed, he will apparently push to do ‘everything possible’ to take Valverde away from the Spanish capital.

The Verdict: Get it done?

Despite only starting 13 La Liga matches for Real this season, making nine appearances off the bench also (WhoScored), Valverde has really impressed when given the opportunity.

BBC Sport writer and tactical analyst Premier League Panel believes the Uruguayan and Eduardo Camavinga will ‘form a world class midfield for the next decade’ based off what he’s seen (Twitter).

Valverde can also play in a variety of roles across the middle of the park, backing why Klopp is apparently so eager to bring him to Anfield.

Real president Florentino Perez certainly rates him, evident by the fact he inserted a mammoth €1 billion (£840m) release clause into his bumper new contract last summer (Goal).

While it won’t cost Liverpool that much to actually sign Valverde for Klopp, it is believed Perez will not let him leave for a penny less than €80m (£67m).

A significant investment of FSG’s part, it remains to be seen whether they will sufficiently back the Reds boss with an audacious summer swoop.
