The Premier League giants are known for going under the radar and signing some hidden gems.
According to multiple reports emanating from England, Liverpool have joined the hunt for Las Palmas midfielder Alberto Moleiro.
The 19-year-old has four years left on his current contract which expires in 2026.
The midfielder has three assists in 14 La Liga 2 games this season.
He has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Spain. Moleiro has represented Spain at Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 10 caps and scoring one goal.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
The Reds are looking to sign a midfielder and have identified the 19-year-old as potential transfer target.
Jürgen Klopp has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.
The Spain U21 international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of midfielder Klopp wants to target in the winter transfer window.
Liverpool will have funds to spend in the market and it will be interesting to see how they approach the winter transfer window.
The 19-year-old will offer the Liverpool boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Liverpool are interested in Las Palmas midfielder Alberto Moleiro. AS says Liverpool are set to ‘rival’ Real Madrid and Barcelona for highly-rated prospect Moleiro. The Reds are among those looking to make a move for the 19-year-old after Anfield officials are said to have received a ‘very good report’ on Molerio. Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid and Barcelona are the other clubs interested in his signature. Barca are rated favourites, however, having signed Pedri from Las Palmas two years ago.”
Euro Football Rumours
It would take a huge offer from Liverpool to prise the 19-year-old midfielder from Las Palmas.
Las Palmas is eager to keep the midfielder beyond the current campaign, but the player may look to take the next step in his career.
Good signing for Liverpool?
It is smart from the club to invest in younger players, rather than splashing out big money on experienced players with no resale value.
Of course, the 19-year-old is not going to become a regular for Liverpool straightaway, but working under Jürgen Klopp would make him a better player.
Stylistically, he would be a great fit at Anfield.
It will be interesting to see if Liverpool can beat their rivals to the midfielder’s signature.
