Liverpool keep a close eye on €35m-rated South American striker
Liverpool keep a close eye on Celta Vigo superstar Maximiliano Gomez and preparing to make an offer during the summer transfer window. Jurgen Klopp keen to improve the attack and his primary target is Uruguay international who has a great campaign and proves his worth one more time.
Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi linked with several clubs, Dominic Solanke moved to Bournemouth, and they need back-up. German manager ready to spend big money on the footballer in July when the transfer window opens again.
Chelsea, Tottenham and Barcelona are also interested in signing him, and there will be a contest for the player. Gomez joined the Célticos from Defensor in 2017 with a €4m deal. He became an unchanged figure for the club and scored many vital goals since joining.
In this season, Maximiliano already played 34 matches, scored 13 goals and made five assists in all competition. It is an impressive consequence, and he can improve his results with high-class partners. Uruguayan centre-forward has contracted with the Spanish club until 2022, and his release clause is around €35m.
His price could increase during this campaign and become much more. The 22-year-old striker regularly plays in the national team and also helped them to reach the quarter-final in the 2018 Mundial, but after losing 2-0 with France, they kicked out from the tournament.
Merseyside club will do everything to add him this summer, but it will be difficult as Blues, Spurs and Blaugrana also planning to make a bid during the transfer window. Reds also linked with Serbian centre-forward Luka Jovic and RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner.
