Udinese have not ruled selling Rodrigo De Paul to Liverpool in the summer transfer window.
Now we all know that Liverpool have a world class squad with world class players, but Jurgen Klopp needs to freshen up the side and add a bit more quality in certain areas of the pitch
Liverpool may be in the market for a new midfielder at the end of the season with Georginio Wijnaldum’s contract set to expire in June, and rumours that he is very interested in leaving and making that big move to Barcelona, and De Paul could emerge as a good option for the Premier League champions given his age and current value.
De Paul’s current contract at Udinese is not due to expire until 2024, but he was linked with a move to Liverpool during the January window, although a move never happened as the Reds had no desire to plash the cash in the transfer window.
However, the club’s sporting director Pasquale Marino has recently opened the door for Liverpool to try and get a transfer deal done and has conceded that they may be powerless to prevent his departure later this year.
“He has characteristics that many top clubs in Europe are missing,” Marino told Italian broadcaster Radio 24.
“I hope it doesn’t happen, but whoever signs him next summer will raise their team to a different level.”
Klopp has made some brilliant signings for Liverpool during his stay with the club, and some not so good decision, so we have no idea if De Paul would be a good signing for the club.
All we know is that he is impressing in Italy, and has been linked with Leeds.
