Liverpool haven’t spent much money at all during this transfer window. In fact the Reds’ net spend on first team players doesn’t even reach a million pounds given that only one senior star has been added to the squad. Instead the club have focused on younger talents and they look intent on continuing with this policy. According to a report from The Mirror, Liverpool are tracking Giovanni Reyna of Borussia Dortmund.
Who is Giovanni Reyna?
17-year-old and standing at just over six feet tall, Giovanni Reyna is an attacking midfielder for Borussia Dortmund.
The American wonderkid joined the Bundesliga club in 2019 from New York City FC.
Since arriving in Germany he has made 19 senior appearances for the Bundesliga giants, scoring twice with both goals coming in the cup.
In 2019 the youngster was included in The Guardian’s Next Generation 2019, a catalogue of the brightest teenage talents in the game.
Liverpool want Reyna
According to a report in The Mirror, Liverpool are tracking Giovanni Reyna.
The American won’t come cheap if the club do try and pursue a deal, given Dortmund’s track record for squeezing buying clubs for every penny when selling their young talents.
The Dortmund side managed to take Barcelona for £135.5m when they sold Ousmane Dembele in 2017.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool signing Giovanni Reyna would certainly be an exciting move.
The youngster is regarded as one of the most talented kids in the game at the minute, his mounting stack of appearances at the senior level is testament to his enormous potential.
However, the Reds are unlikely to be able to afford such a deal at the minute and Dortmund are unlikely to be open to selling given the player’s high ceiling.
This could be a move for much further down the line.
