Liverpool are reportedly interested in securing the services of Real Madrid midfielder Federico Valverde.
The Reds have initiated discussions regarding the 25-year-old Uruguayan international’s potential acquisition. Valverde has played a pivotal role for Madrid since his arrival, and his versatility as both a central midfielder and winger could make him a valuable asset for the Premier League giants.
Valverde contributed significantly with 12 goals and 7 assists across various competitions last season, showcasing his offensive and defensive capabilities. Although the Merseyside outfit have bolstered their midfield with the couple of signings like Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai, departures of players like Henderson, Fabinho, Milner, Keita, and Chamberlain have created a need for reinforcements.
Despite Liverpool’s strong interest, acquiring Valverde might prove challenging given his crucial role within Real Madrid’s future plans. With stalwarts like Modric and Kroos approaching the latter stages of their careers, Real Madrid are strategising for the future, and Valverde is central to their vision.
