Our Liverpool and Spurs fans here in the Transfer Tavern are both desperate to see their sides finish in the top four come the end of this Premier League season.
It’s been a battle royale for those spots so far and, whilst Tottenham in particular look safe, Liverpool still need to turn the wick up to make sure they can’t be reeled in.
Indeed, should both sides finish in the Champions League spots it is pretty safe to assume that they will spend big to stay in that competition for as long as possible and one man they share as a target seems to be Lucas Alario.
And, after Marca via Sportwitness had reported of the pair’s interest earlier this season, it now appears that the young man from Argentina is ready to come to Europe in an apparent boost to their chances of signing him.
His agent told TMW:
“Alario is definitely ready for the jump to Europe. He is currently the best prospect of Argentine football.”
Strong words, then, from Alario’s representative and it appears that this could be a deal that really could happen in the summer.
Thoughts, Reds and Lilywhites? Let us know below!
