Liverpool handed major transfer boost to sign new La Liga sensation from under the nose of Manchester City

Liverpool have been linked with Villarreal’s Alejandro ‘Alex’ Baena. He spent last season with Girona, who share owners with Manchester City.

Alejandro “Alex” Baena of Villarreal has been linked to a move to Liverpool, and according to the Spanish publication Sport, other teams like Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester City are also interested in acquiring him.

Although the 21-year-old is off to a great start in 2022–2023, is he the genuine deal?

Baena has scored three La Liga goals this season from opportunities with a combined Statsbomb expectation value of 1.1. This is primarily due to the fact that he scored on both of his two shots, both of which were at least 19 yards from the goal during a 3-0 victory over Real Valladolid.

The only Liverpool player in the league last season to score twice from outside the box was Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Baena did so in under nine minutes, which is unrepeatable. He is, however, shown the ability to convert some improbable opportunities, like he did in the Europa Conference League.

He now ranks among the best players in Spain for all important attacking metrics over a 90-minute period, including shots, attempts on target, predicted goals other than penalties, and so on.

His performance in a few other match activities, though, gives an indication as to his strengths. While on loan with Girona last season, he showed some of them in the second tier, which suggests the respectable figures are here to remain.

Similar to the Villarreal youngster, despite just completing two through balls so far this season, that’s enough for a share of fifth place in La Liga thus far.

That may not mean much right now, but it helps to understand how he was able to generate 12 clear-cut opportunities in the previous campaign, which ranked seventh in the Spanish second division (per SofaScore).

Even if the quality of the game is plainly inferior there, just five players—including Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah—topped that amount in the Premier League.

The scarse information that is available also implies that the under-21 international is comfortable playing defense. Last season, he recovered 0.9 possessions in the final third for every 90. (via FotMob).

Baena matched the numbers of Diogo Jota and Salah while falling short of Roberto Firmino’s genuinely absurd 1.8.

Given that he has already played all positions in a front three as well as in attacking midfield in his brief career, he might even be able to fill in for both players.

Liverpool will publicly declare that it is none of their concern, but it would have been only natural for them to have taken an interest in Manchester City’s situation this week.

After being charged on Monday with more than 100 alleged financial regulation violations, City, who have won three of the last five Premier League championships by a single point over Liverpool, are currently in the midst of an unusual moment in the history of English football.

The inquiry, which was launched in December 2018 following the publication of documents by the German website Der Spiegel that were first made public by Portuguese hacker Rui Pinto, will now be forwarded to a commission.

Allegations that City have inflated sponsorship, secretly increased important figures’ salary, and disregarded rules regarding how approaches to young players are allowed might result in serious fines, point deductions, or possibly expulsion from the league, according to reports.

Liverpool, who may profit from such a horrific event, is likewise interested in talk of retroactively depriving them of their titles.

But there is at least the air of ambiguity around the Etihad that those at Anfield could benefit from while the matter awaits a resolution—one that must be emphasised that is not expected imminently.

Arsenal and Liverpool set to battle for England international in the summer

West Ham are close to conceding defeat in their hopes of keeping star midfielder Declan Rice.

The exceptionally talented defensive midfielder has been loyal to the Hammers thus far, but after choosing not to extend his contract, the England international is expected to finally leave in the summer transfer window.

Although almost every top-six club has been linked with the player, journalist Rudy Galetti says that Arsenal and Liverpool are the two teams to keep an eye on.

The 24-year-old currently has a little over 12 months left on his deal, and although the Hammers retain the option to add another year, should the club trigger it, it would only be to protect the midfielder’s value, rather than to keep him in their squad for an additional year.

With some of the top elite clubs monitoring the 24-year-old’s situation, West Ham will be bracing themselves for offers, and speaking about their desire to open discussions at the end of the season, Galetti, who spoke to GiveMeSport, said: “It’s too early to talk about negotiation between clubs because West Ham don’t want to discuss about Rice with any clubs until June.

“But for sure, Arsenal will be one that will follow the player with great attention during the next transfer window, and in that sense, we also need to pay attention to Liverpool, who are really interested in him.”

Rice, who has 39 international appearances to his name, was promoted to the Hammers senior first squad in 2017. Since then, he has played in 222 games across all competitions and has directly assisted 23 goals.

Top journalist confirms Liverpool are ‘really interested’ in Arsenal’s top summer target

According to journalist Rudy Galetti, Liverpool are now “extremely interested” in luring Declan Rice away from Arsenal during the summer transfer season.

The Reds have had a terrible season thus far, and following last weekend’s humiliating 3-0 loss to relegation-threatened Wolves, things only got worse.

They still have a midfield problem, which might now derail Arsenal’s summer ambitions.

The Daily Mail revealed last month that Arsenal have made West Ham star Declan Rice their top target for the summer transfer window.

The Gunners are short of options in the middle of the park. Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey are their regular starters, while Jorginho, as good as he is, is only a short-term option.

A new midfielder will be a priority for Mikel Arteta in the summer window, and Rice would be absolutely incredible for them if they can get him.

However, Liverpool are desperate for a new midfielder too, and they could spoil the Gunners’ party.

Galetti told GiveMeSport: “It’s too early to talk about negotiation between clubs because West Ham don’t want to discuss about Rice with any clubs until June.

“But for sure, Arsenal will be one that will follow the player with great attention during the next transfer window, and in that sense, we also need to pay attention to Liverpool, who are really interested in him.”

The Englishman is one of the best players in his position in the Premier League, and he has performed brilliantly – not just for West Ham but for England as well.

What makes him an even more attractive option is the fact that he’s still only 24 years old, which means he’s nowhere near his prime yet and will only get better in the coming years.

Liverpool could do with Rice in the middle of their park, but whether they can compete with Arsenal in this race – especially if the Gunners win the Premier League – remains to be seen.

According to 90min, Bellingham, whose current contract runs until the summer of 2025, will be offered the chance to extend his stay in Germany if he snubs expected offers from a string of elite-level European clubs this summer.

It is claimed that the Bundesliga outfit have made it clear to the midfielder and his family that staying a further 12 months would be of huge benefit to Bellingham, pointing to Jadon Sancho’s struggles since moving to Manchester United in 2021.

“Dortmund ideally want Bellingham to stay in Germany for another season, and to facilitate that they would make him the highest paid player in their history if he signed a new deal,” reads a report from 90min.

“They anticipate making their offer in the coming weeks with a view to holding talks with Bellingham in March, 90min understands.

As we revealed last month, the club are happy to wait for his decision.”

As Atletico Madrid now joins the fray for the Real Betis midfielder, Guido Rodriguez, Liverpool is reportedly up against increasing opposition in the hunt to recruit him.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup champion is reportedly being pursued by both Diego Simeone’s team and Inter Milan, but according to the report, Rodriguez’s priority right now is to sign a new contract with Betis as his current one is slated to expire in 2024.

Rodriguez, described in the article as a “sensational” midfielder at the height of his abilities, has long been linked to Liverpool. La Razon recently reported that the Reds were interested in signing Rodriguez in January as a result of Arthur Melo’s injury setback.

However, as we know, Liverpool failed to sign any midfielder in January, a decision that has infuriated supporters following an awful run of form that has seen the Reds lose to the likes of Wolves, Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford.

With Liverpool failing to sign a midfielder and Atletico now interested in signing Rodriguez, there’s a good chance that the Anfield side will once again miss out on a long-term transfer target, with the Argentine the perfect player to help solve the Klopp’s ongoing midfield issues.

Indeed, Rodriguez could have been a perfect foil for the likes of Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara, yet with the January window long closed and the summer market months away, Liverpool will have to once again have to live with their mistakes after their misstep last month.

With 18 months remaining on his contract, Rodriguez could be primed for a big move this summer if the midfielder fails to agree new terms with Betis.

And for the likes of Atletico, the La Liga giants could land a coup if Liverpool fail to make a move for the Argentina international.

As with Liverpool, Atletico are in a mini-crisis of their own that could be solved with smart moves in the summer, and with Rodriguez one of the most underrated midfielders in Spain, the South American talisman could be ideal for Simeone, who could get one over on Liverpool in the process.
