Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing the James Rodriguez and he may be available for £51million.
Manchester United are also interested in the South American star, according to the Mirror, but we’re apparently at the head of the queue.
The attacking midfielder is currently on loan at Bayern Munich, but Spanish outlet El Confidencial claim Real Madrid would rather sell their asset to another club.
James’ situation is a little unclear as some reports suggest that Bayern have the option to buy the midfielder for £36million at the end of the season.
The Reds got to the chance to preview their could be signing at the Allianz Arena this week; the Colombian played for 79 minutes in Bayern’s 3-1 humbling.
One thing stood out in our Champions League tie in Germany and that was a lack of creativity from central midfield and that’s something James could help us with.
He’s played as a winger for a good segment of his career but has also shown class when being deployed in a midfield trio.
I recently suggested that Liverpool struggle to score goals from midfield and James is certainly the type of player that can help us with that.
With the Reds turning their noses up at Nabil Fekir it’ll be interesting to see how this story ends.
