Liverpool have to pay £23.8m to sign Atletico Madrid No.24 defender

January 3, 2018

As per the recent reports, Liverpool are chasing for the signature of Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez.

It is believed that Liverpool dream defensive transfer from Southampton Virgil van Dijk is being replaced with Atletico Madrid centre-back.

However, one name actively linked with Jurgen Klopp’s interests seems to be the 22-year-old Uruguayan who has started to play in La Liga since arrived from his homeland Danubio in 2013.

Under Diego Simeone’s intensive training sessions, Jose Gimenez has developed exceptionally but lost his place in the side to Stefan Savic so far.

The South American is eager to leave Madrid to guarantee the first-team football in another club and England, especially Liverpool appears his favourite potential destination.

As he claimed before, it is his dream to play in the Premier League because the games are very even.

Liverpool is actively searching experienced defenders to stabilise their offensive activities, thought its impossible with Croatian international Dejan Lovren.

It seems that  Gimenes to be the best option so far is valued at £23.8m by  Transfermarket and would be much cheaper than van Dijk.
