According to Bleacher Report, Liverpool have joined the hunt for Musa Al-Tamari who has been the subject of interest for scouts across Europe this season.
Al-Tamari, 22, has been playing his trade with Cypriot champions APOEL and the youngster has even been dubbed as the ‘Jordanian Messi’ with the winger destined for a big move in the upcoming summer window.
Serie A duo Cagliari and Fiorentina were originally amongst those interested in Al-Tamari but Champions League clubs now have him on their radar, with Liverpool, Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund and Atalanta all taking a look this season, according to Dean Jones of the Bleacher Report.
Al-Tamari has been playing in Europe for two seasons but quickly became a fan favourite in Cyprus. Originally joining in May 2018, after time on loan with Amman’s Al-Jazeera Club, he quickly became a club-icon amongst the fan base.
The tricky winger was crowned the Cypriot First Division’s MVP in his first season, and his playing style turned heads. For his club side, Al-Tamari has clocked up 32 appearances scoring three times whilst registering an impressive nine assists.

Meanwhile, for his country, Al-Tamari has been capped 32 times and has scored seven goals.

What RTK has to say
The Reds have proven themselves as a formidable force in the transfer market and if Al-Tamari is to be as good as he has been deemed then Liverpool’s team of analytics will certainly not have missed a trick on this one.
As the Independent recent reported, plausibility and cost are the defining factors behind a Liverpool transfer accept in the case of Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker who were both considered transformative additions in their respected positions.
At 22, Al-Tamari has youth on his side and similarly to Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane could be waiting for that global stage to announce himself on. Also, similarly to Salah, the APOEL forward has the weight of a nation on his shoulders so seeing the Egyptian forward’s impact at Liverpool could play a factor in a deal materialising.
