After a series of terrible results, it seems that Jurgen Klopp is ready to strengthen his Liverpool squad.
Yesterday, we covered a report claiming that the Reds have been tracking Argentine international Leandro Paredes for a long time and Roma are prepared to sell him for a fee of 30 million euros (via Italian media).
Now, Emanuele Giulianelli has claimed in an exclusive report (The Sun), that Liverpool are determined to finally get his signing done and are set to launch a move of 26.5million pounds ($33million).
The Italian football journalist has stated that Roma are looking to cash in on Leandro and use the funds to sign Atlanta starlet Franck Kessie. Moreover, Giulianelli adds that Klopp will hope that signing Paredes can give Liverpool a much needed boost.
The 22-year-old South American star is a specialist defensive midfielder, one that Liverpool badly need in their squad. This season, Paredes has featured in 14 league games for the Serie A side and has scored one goal.
As per the provided Sun link, even the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are interested in signing the former Boca Juniors Midfielder.
Liverpool have lacked a strong defensive midfielder since the departure of Javier Mascherano back in 2010. Paredes could be the man to finally solve the conundrum at Anfield.
