Liverpool in pole position to sign €25m-rated creative La Liga winger

Reds have reportedly made Martin Odegaard their top priority transfer target as Real Madrid decide they’re ready to cash in on him now for £44m. The 20-year-old forward is seen by Merseyside club as an ideal Philippe Coutinho replacement.

Martin has shone on loan at Real Sociedad this campaign but may not have a long-term future at Spanish capital as it seems Florentino Perez is preparing to let him go for the correct price. This has led to Odegaard also being linked as a transfer target for Man United, but one imagines Merseyside club would surely be his preferred option.

Norway international could be an ideal fit in Liverpool and should follow other young footballers in improving under the expert guidance of Jurgen Klopp. £44m could end up being a bargain for Reds if Norwegian attacker fulfils his enormous potential, so Merseyside club fans will surely be desperate to see this happen.

Martin joined the Los Blancos from Strømsgodset in 2015 with a €3m deal. He has a vast potential and can become a top-class winger if he continuous improvement. Odegaard is a regular member of the national team squad which is already a big success for the footballer. Reds set to spend considerable money on the starlet during the next summer.

Liverpool started this season fantastically as they won all matches and leading the Premier League table. Merseyside club signed several players during the summer transfer window like Sepp van der Berg from Zwolle, Harvey Elliott from Fulham, Spanish shot-stopper Adrian and English goalkeeper Andy Lonergan.
