Liverpool have mainly been linked with Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita in this summer’s transfer window but latest reports suggest that a certain Uruguayan midfielder wants to join the Reds.
According to an exclusive report covered by Alfredo Pedulla, Genoa has put Diego Laxalt in the market and are demanding a fee of at least 30 million euros ($35million) (plus bonuses).
The Italian journalist has mentioned that the likes of Torino and West Ham United have got their bids rejected for the South American player.
Moreover, it is stated that Everton are thinking about signing the 24-year-old star but he dreams of joining Liverpool and knows that he is admired by Jurgen Klopp.
The former Empoli player is a versatile talent, who can operate in multiple positions on the field but naturally, he is a left sided midfielder.
In the last campaign for the Serie A club, Diego featured in 36 league games, scored one goal and provided four assists.
Laxalt’s current deal will expire next year and therefore, it is baffling that Genoa are demanding a huge fee (mentioned above). His stats are average and Liverpool do not really need to sign him.
