Liverpool are in dire need of reinforcements in the middle of the park. The Reds can’t afford to not buy a midfielder after the loss of Gini Wijnaldum. Jürgen Klopp’s solution could be in Spain. According to a report, Saul wants a Premier League move amid Liverpool interest.
Liverpool bid for Saul
26-year-old Spanish midfielder Saul Niguez plays his football for Atletico Madrid.
The La Liga star broke Kopites’ hearts not too long ago when he poked home a scruffy goal early on in a Champions League first leg tie.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Liverpool have had a £34m bid rejected for the utility man.
Atleti are said to be holding out for a figure closer to £43m.
Meanwhile, a report in Sky Sports recently claimed that Barcelona have entered the fray, offering Antoine Griezmann in a swap deal.
Saul wants Premier League move
A more recent development could be good news for the Reds.
El Larguero has reported that the proposed swap deal between the Spanish sides has cooled down.
The outlet has claimed that Saul wants a Premier League move amid reported interest from Liverpool.
Apparently the deal with Barcelona is unfeasibly because of the monster salary Griezmann is currently on.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool signing Saul would be a statement move.
Even though he has fallen out of favour at Atletico Madrid he is still a well renowned midfielder.
His versatility would be a great asset to Jürgen Klopp and he has the stamina to fit into our system.
He looks nailed on to leave Atleti this summer, we just don’t know where to yet.
