The Football Transfer Tavern is always on the lookout for possible news surrounding the finest young talents around Euorpe, and today is no different as talkSPORT reveal that a hot Italian prospect is being courted by a host of Premier League clubs.
The publication indicates that Liverpool and Manchester United have been put on red alert with the latest reports from Italy that suggest Udinese striker Luis Muriel would consider a switch to the Premier League in the summer.
Muriel, 22, is already regarded as one of the most promising strikers in world football and he could emerge as one of the young stars of the World Cup with his nation Colombia.
He is now being touted with a big-money move away from Serie A as his stock grows and the representatives from both United and Liverpool have recently watched him in action.
However, his agent Helmuth Wennin is reported as saying that the youngster will not consider a transfer until after the conclusion of the World Cup in Brazil.
He said: “Now is not the time to talk about the market. Udinese and the forthcoming World Cup with Colombia are the only things in Luis’ head.
“When will he decide his future? Surely after the end of the World Cup.”
Muriel has always been tipped for big things and here in the tavern we can’t wait to see what the future holds for the young striker.
Can you see either of the Premier League clubs landing the talented forward? Let us know your thoughts below.
