Liverpool have been looking to sign a new left back for a long time and the Reds must sign one in the summer transfer window to improve the quality and depth of the team.
At the moment, former Manchester City star James Milner is being utilized in the left back position. The retired England international has done well in the LB role but he is mainly a midfielder and the Merseysiders are eyeing a natural defender for the position.
According to recent reports, Atletico Madrid star Theo Hernandez has been linked with Liverpool. The teenager is on loan with Alaves this season and has provided 4 assists in 30 appearances for the Spanish side.
One of our team members, Zaryab, was at Nou Camp when Theo played against Barcelona back in September 2016 and he was impressive as Deportivo won the game 2-1 on the night.
Fortunately, that night, Messi did not start and the young defener handed Turan with ease. The Argentine superstar was brought on in the second half but could not impact the game
Spanish source Cadena Ser have claimed that Liverpool have moved in an offered Theo a salary that is five times more than what he is currently earning. The Reds think that he is the perfect player to replace Alberto Moreno and solve the ongoing conundrum at the back.
Real Madrid are also interested in signing the French international but it will not be shocking if Atletico opt not to sell him to their rivals.
As per the provided Cadena Ser link, Hernandez has a release clause of 24 million euros ($25.4million) and the Los Blancos are ready to offer even more to hire his services.
