Liverpool have been handed hope they could sign Valencia captain Carlos Soler in what could be a bargain £33 million deal this summer.
The Spaniard’s long-term future at Mestalla is in doubt, with the Anfield side and Barcelona mentioned as admirers of the 25-year-old.
AS stated earlier this week that Blaugrana had actually reached an agreement over a deal for him but, that was dismissed out of hand by Los Che.
While the midfielder continues to be linked with a transfer to Camp Nou, Jurgen Klopp’s team are also firmly in the mix for his signature.
Sport says that although the Catalan giants’ senior figure Mateu Alemany is a great supporter of Carlos’ signing, the Merseysiders, Juventus and Atletico Madrid are also looking at a possible transfer.
He is said to want out of his boyhood club after a falling out with head coach Jose Bordalas. His existing deal runs down in June 2023 but it includes a €50 million (£42.2 million) release clause.
The German tactician is planning to add another quality performer to the Reds midfield and Soler surely fits the bill. Sought-after Spain international has netted 35 goals in 219 matches for Valencia.
