Liverpool edge even closer to signing Arsenal transfer target

Illarramendi.jpgLiverpool fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are feeling optimistic after seeing the news from Metro, which claims that Brendan Rodgers’ side have submitted a bid for Real Madrid ace Asier Illarramendi.

The 25-year-old joined Real Madrid in 2013 from Real Sociedad and he has found it hard to firmly cement himself in the starting eleven in the team, subsequently suggesting he may depart the Bernabeu this summer.

The publication claims that the Spanish defensive midfielder is also a target for Arsenal, however it seems that Liverpool have gone into pole position to sign the player in the summer.

A large bunch of Reds fans over by the dartboard in the Football Transfer Tavern feel this is the calibre of player the club should be targeting, with all of them agreeing this would be an extremely astute purchase if the deal materialised.
