Liverpool planning surprise move for No.10 Spanish playmaker

Liverpool are reportedly finalising a move for La Liga giants, Valencia playmaker Carlos Soler in the summer of 2022.

The 24-year-old midfielder was a shining light in an otherwise disappointing 2020-21 season for Valencia last term, registering 11 goals and eight assists from 32 appearances in La Liga.

Soler has also started the current campaign brightly with three goals in his side’s opening three games, but his deal with Jose Bordalas’s side is set to expire in 2023.

The Merseyside Reds have failed to sign a replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum who has departed from the club for free joining Ligue 1 giants, Paris Saint-Germain, however, Fichajes reports that Jurgen Klopp has now identified Soler as an ideal transfer target for the next year.

The report adds that a possible contract renewal for Soler at La Liga giants, Valencia is still uncertain, and the Spanish giants could therefore be pressured into a sale before he enters the final year of his contract.

Soler made his debut for Spain in Thursday’s 2-1 World Cup Qualifying loss to Sweden and has made a 188 appearances for La Liga outfits, Valencia since graduating from their youth academy, founding back of the net 26 times and assisting 26 more
