When it comes to the transfer market, Liverpool are simply one of the best in the business.
The latest reports in Spain suggest that Liverpool are linked with surprise move for Real Madrid midfielder Fede Valverde.
The 24-year-old has been with Real since 2016, having signed for the club from Peñarol for 5 million euros. His current deal expires in 2027.
In 9 appearances this season, Valverde has managed to score four goals and contributed with two assists.
The 24-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Uruguay. His record for Uruguay is also impressive. Valverde has scored four goals in 42 matches for Uruguay at senior level.
He is enjoying an excellent season so far.
Liverpool are looking to sign a midfielder and have identified the 24-year-old as potential transfer target.
The Liverpool manager has kept an eye on Valverde for the last 12 months and he is impressed with the midfielder’s performances.
Liverpool are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The former Peñarol man will offer the Liverpool boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Liverpool are readying a January offer for Real Madrid midfielder Fede Valverde. AS says Liverpool are ready to “try again” to lure midfielder Valverde away from Real Madrid. In a deadline day scramble, due to injuries, Liverpool brought in Arthur Melo on loan from Juventus, but reports suggested the Reds wanted to sign Madrid man Valverde. Liverpool were willing to part with £85 million in order to add the Uruguayan midfielder to their ranks, but the sale of Casemiro to Manchester United meant Madrid were unwilling to part with Valverde. It is claimed Liverpool will try to sign Valverde again next summer with midfield additions needed at Anfield. Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham is regarded as Liverpool’s midfield transfer priority for 2023.”
