Liverpool are not interested in signing Bruno Fernandes, as per the London Evening Standard, who claim the Reds won’t try to use Camacho as a makeweight in a deal for the winger.
Sporting Lisbon are in talks with the Reds over a deal for Camacho but both parties aren’t interested in using the 19-year-old as part of a deal for Fernandes.
The Mirror reported earlier this month that Fernandes could be sold for £71m and now that the Evening Standard are reporting that he is not on the Reds’ wish list, it’s quite refreshing.
Liverpool, to be frank, have almost got too many central midfielders and even though none of them are out and out attacking midfielders, Bruno Fernandes isn’t a smart choice for the Reds.
Spending over £7om on a player in a position that isn’t a priority for Klopp flies in the face of everything the German has done in cooperation with the club’s owners Fenway Sports Group.
Rather, that money can be spent on signing squad options. Liverpool need a new backup goalkeeper if Mignolet leaves this summer, a left back as backup to Robertson and a quality alternative to the front three.
While it wouldn’t be a spectacular summer transfer window, if Klopp and co. identify the right squad options, there’s no reason why they can’t match or better what was achieved last season.
They will be keen to make it to a third successive Champions League final and will be desperate to win the Premier League ahead of Manchester City.
