Barcelona are reportedly showing an interest in a potential transfer swoop for Villarreal winger and rumoured €60million Liverpool target Samuel Chukwueze.
According to Don Balon, Jurgen
Klopp is ‘in love’ with the player, but it seems his exciting performances in LaLiga have also caught Barca’s attention.
Chukwueze is a pacey wide-player
with a goal threat from either flank,
having scored four goals in all
competitions this season to show he could have a very bright future in the game.
Still only 20 years of age, the
Nigerian starlet looks like he really fits the bill in terms of Liverpool’s playing style under Klopp, so it will be interesting to see how this saga
It’s not easy turning down a club like Barcelona, but in fairness to Liverpool, Chukwueze may well view a move to Anfield as the superior option right now anyway.
Barcelona have been going through
something of a difficult transitional
period in recent years and don’t look the force they once were after the departures of so many big names in quick succession, wit Xavi, Dani Alves, Neymar, Javier Mascherano and Andres
Iniesta among those to leave in the
space of just five years.
Liverpool, by contrast, look to be
building something very exciting and arguably now look likelier than
Barcelona to deliver major trophies.
