Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern will be looking ahead to their match with Manchester City in the Champions League and hoping they can take the advantage in front of their own supporters.
Jurgen Klopp’s side has been in impressive form this season and will go up against an equally impressive Pep Guardiola side as they compete for a place in the semi-final.
However, it appears the Reds will have to compete with a number of Europe’s top clubs for Ferran Torres, according to claims by the Daily Mail.
The media outlet is reporting that Liverpool will need to beat competition from Premier League rivals Chelsea, as well as Barcelona and Real Madrid for the Valencia teenager, who is described within the report as a confident winger.
The 18-year-old, who has featured for Los Che ten times this season, has been attracting interest from the Anfield outfit for some time and it is believed they would have to spend £21.9million to sign him.
Torres, who is contracted to stay at the Mestalla until 2020, had been pushing for playing time in the senior side after solid performances for the reserves and Valencia will be reluctant to let him go, though they do reportedly expect offers to come in the summer.
Liverpool locals in the Tavern will be excited at the possibility of bringing one of Spain’s hottest prospects to the club in the summer, although concerns that Real Madrid and Barcelona are interested could prove difficult to bring him to Anfield.
The winger is highly-talented and has already featured for his national set up at the Under-19 level, and fans will be hoping to get a deal for £21.9M done, as it would appear to be a steal.
