Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have made it abundantly clear over the weekend that they need a busy summer window, as they slurred their arguments towards our bar staff after drinking heavily following the weekend’s draw with Sunderland.
Whilst the January transfer activity from Jurgen Klopp’s side barely made a drop in the ocean, it seems the Merseyside giants are aiming to make a massive splash when the current season ends.
Fichajes state Liverpool are ready to finally land the signing of long-term target Jese Rodriguez, with the Reds targeting the Real Madrid forward throughout the last few windows and failing with a January approach for the Spaniard.
Rodriguez has limited first-team opportunities at the Santiago Bernabeu, facing vast competition from the likes of Gareth Bale, James Rodriguez and Cristiano Ronaldo, which means he could be forced out of the Spanish capital this summer.
Crucially, Real Madrid are happy to approve the player’s exit as they believe offloading the forward will improve their chances of landing their prime target this summer, with Eden Hazard of Chelsea the man they’ve set their sights on.
Our landlord believes Rodriguez would be excellent for Liverpool but he’s fired an early warning to the lads at the bar, stating the 22-year-old is likely to push for a move to a Champions League side.
Liverpool fans, should Jese Rodriguez be top of your summer wish-list? Let us know in the comments below!
