Journalist Reveals Liverpool scouts ‘likely’ sent to watch sensational £50m talent compared only to Mbappe & Vinicius in his position
Guardian journalist says Liverpool scouts ‘likely’ sent to watch talent second only to Mbappe & Vinicius in his position.
With Mykhaylo Mudryk “likely the reason,” Liverpool scouts are apparently planning to attend the forthcoming Champions League match between Shakhtar Donetsk and Real Madrid.
This information was provided by a tweet from Guardian writer Artur Petrosyan who had been researching connections between the Reds and the Ukrainian international.
The Merseysiders will need to outperform earlier unsuccessful offers from Premier League rivals Everton and Brentford for the 21-year-old forward, according to Fabrizio Romano, who estimates that a proposal potentially exceeding £43.8 million will be necessary.
We continue to believe that it is doubtful that Liverpool would prioritize a new attacker over strengthening the midfield unit, which has been hampered by a variety of injuries.
The concerns about our operations in the middle of the park have mostly been covered up by Thiago Alcantara’s comeback, but it’s obvious that reinforcements will be needed sooner rather than later – and if so, no later than the summer window.
If Dario Srna’s assessment is correct, it will still be exciting to move for a player who might be on par with players like Kylian Mbappe and Vinicius Jr.
