Liverpool make official inquiry for Real Madrid star also wanted by Arsenal and Chelsea

Aakarsh / 25 August 2016

Jurgen Klopp’s men avenged their loss to Burnley at the weekend with an accomplished performance against the football league outfit Burton Albion on Tuesday.

He sent out a very strong team with most of the first team players taking part in the game as he was searching for a proper come back after the disappointment at Turf Moor.

With the victory out of the way, Liverpool have now turned their attention to shaping their squad with the manager once again linked with some of the best players in Europe at the moment.

The likes of Coutinho, Firmino, Lallana and Mane will occupy Liverpool’s options behind the striker which makes them a formidable outfit in attack ahead of the next season.

However, the manager does not seem to happy with his options and has looked into the transfer market for additions to his attack.

Real Madrid outcast James Rodriguez has been one of the most talked about players in the current transfer window. The likes of PSG, Arsenal and Chelsea were all extensively linked with a £60m move for the Colombian but with Zidane not yet ready to sell, Rodriguez is still at the Bernabeu.

Reports today have revealed that the Reds are interested in bringing the Real Madrid outcast to Anfield and want him to lead their charge back to Europe this season.

The 25-year old was impressive in his debut season in Spain but was not able to keep up with the demands of the kings of Europe and has fallen down the pecking order under the new manager Zinedine Zidane.

He is reportedly looking at other clubs to resurrect his career and it is understood that Klopp is ready to provide him with an opportunity.

Mundo Deportivo say Liverpool have enquired about his price ahead of a possible bid before the end of the transfer window.

However, the report went on to say that the Spanish outfit want around the £51m mark for their man and that they do not believe that the Reds can meet their valuation.

But with the number of players already at the club, a big money bid for Rodriguez hardly seems sensible. Do you think Liverpool should spill the cash on the Colombian this summer?
