Liverpool close in on signing South American superstar

Liverpool have been offered a rare opportunity to sign Real Madrid’s out of favour attacker James Rodriguez.

The Colombian who was the star of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil has been struggling to make an impact in the Spanish capital since he moved there that summer.

His frustration reportedly boiled over after he was not even named in the match day squad for the Champions League final two months ago, and he is now more desperate to kick-start his career elsewhere.

Chelsea and Manchester United were initially keen on bringing him to England, but they have now turned their attention to other targets paving the way for Liverpool to sign him.

Liverpool Echo is reporting that the Reds are on course to take up the offer. Per the source, Liverpool is prepared to splash £66 million to bring the Colombian to Anfield as they look to make him their marquee signing.

Jürgen Klopp is looking to sign a defender and a midfielder before the end of the transfer window. The Reds have met frustration in their pursuit of RB Leipzig’s Naby Keita, and look set to move for Rodriguez instead. © 2017 Frontier Theme
