Liverpool is “ready to pay” Real Madrid’s asking price for star midfielder Federico Valverde this summer, claims Spanish newspaper Nacional (via Football365).
While Chelsea and Manchester City are reportedly also interested in the Uruguayan international, the La Liga heavyweights are reportedly seeking roughly £76 million for him. According to the claim, Jurgen Klopp’s team is ‘leading the race’ to sign him.
After losing James Milner, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain earlier this month and adding Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton, Klopp is ready to bolster his roster.
The player himself admitted he would like to continue winning championships with Los Blancos, but this most recent story seems to hint that Real will be more active in the transfer market before next season. According to 90min, Liverpool were ‘knocked back’ after enquiring about a move for Valverde.
