Liverpool fans are looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they hear that Asier Illarramendi is a top target for them according to the Daily Mirror.
Now as one of our punters notes over a beer and burger by the bar, we think that the midfielder is certainly someone who should be on the radar of the top English clubs, and having never really gotten a chance at Real Madrid, the player still has plenty to prove and would come at a cut priced fee as well.
The Reds are believed to be able to land him for around £16 million, which is a figure we think would also interest Arsenal and Manchester United – and for good reason as well, so Brendan Rodgers may well have to get a move on before he loses out on the star.
Liverpool fans. Is Illarramendi someone you want to land this summer or is he just a Real Madrid reject? Let us know your thoughts below.
