Liverpool keep a close eye on 24-year-old Uruguay international midfielder

Liverpool needed a quality midfielder last summer and they made a big move late in the transfer window. Liverpool offered £100m to hire the services of Federico Valverde but Real Madrid opted to hold onto him. More recently, reports in the media suggest that the Reds are preparing a crazy offer to finally add the 24-year-old midfielder.

The Merseyside club are willing to submit an offer worth £132m to add Valverde, who has been fantastic for the Los Blancos. The media outlet claims La Liga club are still not interested in offloading Federico but the above mentioned offer would be impossible to turn down.

Such a massive sale would help them attain funds to lure Jude Bellingham and may stop Liverpool from pursuing the English midfielder. As far as the player’s preference is concerned, it is reported that Uruguay international, who has a long-term deal at Real Madrid, has no intention of leaving the Spanish club anytime soon.

The Uruguayan is a versatile midfielder, who has mainly played on the right flank for Los Blancos because they have ample depth in the centre park with footballers like Kroos, Modric, Tchouameni and Camavinga around.

The South American midfielder set up the winning goal in the Champions League final with Liverpool last term and as far as this campaign is concerned, so far, he has netted 4 goals and provided 2 assists in 8 starts in all tournaments for the European champions.
